Representing Florida parents in child support modification cases

Many Florida residents seek quick divorces that will minimize the amount of time they have to spend in court. However, this can be to the detriment of one or both of the parties if a judge issued a child support order. In many cases, the original child support order is insufficient to cover children's needs. In other cases, either children's or parents' needs change, prompting parents to seek either a reduction or increase to the monthly support amount.

Although you may be able to prove that your or your children's needs have changed or that your ex-spouse's circumstances have changed substantially enough to warrant a support order modification, a judge may still decide to refuse to issue a modified order. Modifications to child support, spousal support or child custody and visitation orders are often difficult to secure because judges tend to favor the decisions they or other judges in the state have already issued. They may believe that your original order provides the most stable arrangement for your children.

Our attorneys have more than 20 years of experience representing clients in child custody and child support disputes. We have worked with clients who sought modifications to support orders or visitation schedules and defended parents who wanted to keep their original support orders in place. We understand how paying or receiving child support impacts your life and are prepared to advocate for your interests before a judge.

Our firm is committed to ensuring that you receive a child support order that is fair to you and still serves your children's best interests. If you are interested in learning more about how we help people in these situations, please see our page on child support modifications.
