Dividing Assets And Paying Alimony
Are You Entitled To Any Type Of Modifications?
Whenever there is a legal decision made that involves a monetary settlement, there is a chance that pre or post-judgment modifications will need to be made. There are a number of different situations in which this is likely to occur. In the state of Florida, most of the post-judgment cases that involve assets are handled in civil court instead of being heard in family court. When there are alimony cases that require modifications, they are sometimes handled in family court. There are other situations where this can happen as well. This is up to the discretion of the judges involved.
Post Judgment Modifications: How many modifications can be made?
Child Support And Visitation
If one or more parties can show that there have been significant changes since the child support order was entered, judges can make concessions and allow some changes to be made when it comes to the relationship between one or both parties and the children. Significant changes include things like a change in income, increase job responsibility, changes in living arrangements and the age of the child involved.
Post Judgment Modifications
This kind of case is akin to starting all over and making decisions that will have a large impact on the life of the child. This doesn’t mean that assets and debts will be reconsidered. Alimony is another area where people tend to seek modifications. In most cases, changes can be made, but this will depend on the details of the order. They are handled on a case-by-case basis. Talking to a legal advisor will give you an idea of what can be expected.
