What Will A Modification Mean For My Family?
As time goes on, you may feel your legal agreement no longer fits your situation. For others, you may resist the idea and feel everything is operating smoothly. The Law Office of Hollis E. Mandell, P.A., in Fort Lauderdale, has helped clients in the region and across Florida understand their options when it comes to modifying their custody or support orders. We can provide you with the information you need to address all of your concerns.
Finding Creative Solutions For Your Changing Situation
No two families are the same, and our firm is committed to giving you the individualized attention you deserve. We can look at your current legal arrangement and help you determine where there are opportunities to address the orders in place. Some of the reasons that a court may entertain a change to these orders include:
- Changing jobs or a change in work circumstances (Less hours, more income, etc.)
- One of the parents needing to move out of state (a relocation)
- A party receiving spousal support entering into a new marriage
- Children wanting to have more time with other parent as they get older
- Other factors that the court believes significant enough to require a previous order to be reexamined
Just as we represent those who would like to modify their legal agreements, we also work with those who contest the changes. If your partner wants to make amendments to your situation and you think it will only cause more harm, you have a right to stand up for yourself. We do this by showing how well your current plan is working and the benefits to all family members involved. After providing an honest assessment, we can discuss how we will build your case.
