Orlando Divorce Modification Attorney

When your divorce decree was established, it was based on your circumstances at that time. But over the months or years, those conditions may have changed.

While the law doesn’t define “change of circumstances,” there are a number of common issues that qualify for a court-ordered divorce modification.

Common issues for divorce modification include:

  • Relocation, especially to a different state
  • Remarriage
  • Increase or decrease in earnings
  • Paternity disputes
  • Unstable or inappropriate environment for children
  • Unforeseen expenses, including medical expenses
  • Drug or alcohol use

Present Your Best Case

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 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 Orlando divorce modification attorney 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, 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.
