What is Modification of Decrees?
Post-decree modifications of court orders are a part of life in family law. Sometimes things don’t go as they should. Sometimes the court orders that used to work just don’t work anymore. Perhaps the court heard all the evidence, and didn’t rule in your favor, but things have changed since then. Perhaps you made an agreement with your ex, which the court made an order, but now they aren’t holding up their end of the bargain. Perhaps the needs of the child have changed and your ex can no longer meet the child’s needs, or perhaps your ex has changed and they can no longer parent your child properly. Whatever the reason, if you have had a change in circumstances, it may be time for a change in your custody, visitation, shared parenting, child support or spousal support orders.
Quattrone Family Law knows that in Tampa, post-decree modifications are not simply another bite at the apple. You need to know what the law requires to get the changes you want, and you need to have evidence to meet your burden of proof. Evidence comes in many forms, including exhibits and testimony, but your evidence must be admissible under the Florida Rules of Evidence. Each Florida Family Law Attorney at our firm has the experience to provide you with advice regarding the law, your evidence, and the strengths and weaknesses of your post-decree modification case.
