Court Order Modifications in Panama Beach City
Protect Your Legal & Parental Rights with Our Experienced Family Law Lawyers
A critical aspect of the divorce process is negotiating the terms of your divorce settlement agreement. This legal document clearly states your decisions regarding asset division, debt allocation, child custody, and financial support options. Once the court evaluates and approves this agreement, the judge will issue a divorce decree and certain court orders to guarantee that the terms of the divorce settlement agreement are upheld by both parties. Even if the divorce goes to trial, there are certain orders that will be issued to protect children or a lower-earning spouse. However, the concessions and decisions you negotiated with your ex five years ago may no longer reflect your current life circumstances. Fortunately, you can request a modification to most family law court orders.

Requesting a Modification
Divorce can be an emotionally challenging and life-altering legal process. Sadly, divorce probably isn’t the last trial you’re going to experience in life. For example, it’s not unusual for divorced individuals to lose their jobs, relocate for work, or be financially burdened by unexpected medical debts. If you’re struggling financially, you may be able to request a modification from the court. However, without experienced legal representation, it can be incredibly difficult to modify or terminate a court order. Luckily, our legal team has the skills and resources to successfully guide you through this complicated legal process.
You may be able to obtain modifications for the following court orders:
If you want to modify or terminate a court order, your legal team first needs to prove that you’re suffering from a lasting change in your personal or financial circumstances. For example, you may not be able to follow the court-ordered visitation schedule if your job is forcing you to relocate. The court issues time-sharing orders to guarantee that both parents have an opportunity to maintain healthy relationships with their child. In this scenario, the court may agree to modify the court order so long as it benefits your child’s best interests. Even so, a judge can’t modify an order if the repercussions seriously harm your child’s emotional or environmental stability. It’s important to discuss your case with a knowledgeable attorney before you file your petition.
Sometimes, people wait too long to request a modification because they believe their circumstances are only temporary. If you wait too long to file your petition, the court may no longer have reasonable grounds to modify your court order. At The Virga Law Firm, P.A, our legal team can evaluate your circumstances, collect applicable evidence, and develop a persuasive litigation strategy that can be used in court. By utilizing these resources, we can prove to the court that your personal circumstances warrant a modification.
