Can custody/time-sharing rights be modified in Florida?

Yes, custody and time-sharing can always be modified in Florida if the lawyers can show a substantial change in circumstances. That’s the measuring stick. When you meet with your lawyer, it’s important that you explain to your lawyer what has changed since the date of entry of the last order. Everything that happened before that first order is no longer in play because it can’t be a change in circumstance since the entry of the new order. Again, the measuring stick at that point becomes what is in the best interest of your child?
