Modification and Enforcement
No one can predict the future, especially when dealing with issues of modification and enforcement. After entering into an Agreement or after a Final Judgment has been entered, you may need the services of a family law attorney to deal with subsequent changes in circumstances. Under Florida law, property settlements are not subject to modification but there is always the possibility of a child support modification or a modification of custody. Further, a modification or termination of alimony in some circumstances may be appropriate. When these changes occur, including those affecting a party’s income or the best interests of your children, it affects the applicability of prior court orders relating to child support, time sharing, and spousal support and an appropriate remedy may be modification.
Similarly, despite having secured a judgment, a party’s compliance is not necessarily guaranteed. Whether it be to enforce a property division, child support enforcement, or to enforce an award of alimony, it is important that you receive what you are entitled to. Often, a skilled family law attorney can secure attorney’s fees from the non-compliant party. At The Law Office of Jordan Gerber, P.A, we stress to our clients the importance of taking the appropriate legal action immediately when dealing with issues of modification and enforcement. The negative effects of waiting too long to act can be devastating.
