How Do You Amend a Divorce Decree
If you’ve outgrown your original divorce agreement and need to adjust the terms, you can petition for a divorce modification. However, depending on your relationship with your ex, it may not be easy to obtain. The Florida courts don’t make changes simply because you request them. You’ll need to present your reasoning and evidence for the judge to consider. When the modifications could affect children, the court will lean toward what’s in their best interest, not necessarily yours.
You’ll want to work with a qualified divorce modification lawyer in Orlando to ensure your interests are protected and the outcome is favorable. Schlegel Law Group can assist you. We’ll build a strong case, then argue persuasively on your behalf.
Our Attorneys Handle Post-Divorce Modifications of All Types in Orlando, Including:
Don’t rely on verbal or even written agreements with your ex concerning changes to the terms of your divorce orders. If you don’t have formal approval from the court, such agreements can’t be legally enforced. That’s a risk you don’t want to take.
