Clearwater Divorce Modifications Lawyers

File for Divorce Modifications When Life Throws You a Curve Ball

Life happens. Plans change. What was appropriate when you initially dissolved your marriage to your ex-spouse may no longer apply. When this occurs, it may be time to file for modifications to your divorce decree. This is done just as filing divorce is done.

You file a petition and wait 20 days for your ex-spouse to respond. They may file a counter-petition and then the case in the hands of the Florida courts. Just as in your divorce, it is recommended that you retain experienced legal counsel to look after your best interests.

Our Clearwater divorce modifications attorney has been advocating for divorced individuals and their families for 30+ years. She understands the court system and can guide you through the modifications process.

For a determined divorce modification lawyer in Clearwater who can defend your rights, contact the office of Connie R. Stephens, P.A. at (727) 205-0770.

Valid Reasons to File for Modifications

Provisions for divorce modifications are set in place to protect each spouse for what may occur in the future. As you move along through life, your situation may change, requiring you to either increase or decrease the amount of child support or alimony that was ordered in the divorce. There are multiple reasons why your situation may change.

The main reasons a Florida judge would allow for divorce modifications include:

  • Significant decrease or increase in income
  • Retirement
  • Remarriage
  • Health concerns

If your income has dropped drastically due to the loss of employment, it may be possible to get the amount of money you pay for support reduced, depending on the circumstances. Voluntarily leaving your job or not actively searching for work while you are unemployed are not reasons for a judge to approve modifications.

If you remarry you are basically voiding the agreement that your spouse made to pay you alimony. Our knowledgeable family law attorney in Clearwater is familiar with these situations and others that would require divorce modifications.
