Child Support Modifications
Divorce or family law issues can present special challenges. Understand both your rights and your obligations under American law.
A Less Destructive Divorce
We focus on helping our clients work out a divorce settlement that everyone can live with. For most couples, this can lead to a better outcome long term.
I represent men and women, married or divorcing couples, and unmarried parents, who need to seek a modification to an existing order or divorce agreement that has been filed with the Florida family courts. I understand that sometimes there is a substantial change in circumstances that requires a couple to revisit an issue and change the terms they had previously agreed to.
My name is Carmelina Marin and I am an experienced family law attorney. At my law office, The Marin Law Firm, P.A., in Orlando, I work closely with families throughout Central Florida who need a modification drafted and formally recognized by the court. Contact me for a confidential consultation today to learn more about how I can help you.
Florida Modifications Of Existing Court Orders
I represent people who need to seek a modification of existing orders concerning:
- Child custody
- Visitation or parenting time agreements
- Child support
- Alimony or spousal support
Have Your Circumstances Changed?
In my experience, the best way to resolve a situation where one party wants to amend an already existing agreement is to negotiate the terms and draft a modification together that accomplishes both sides’ needs. However, I understand that this is not always possible and sometimes it is necessary to compel the performance of another party. I am always prepared to aggressively advocate in court on behalf of my clients.
An Aggressive And Thorough Attorney To Help You Achieve Your Goals
Modifications are not always automatically granted by the court. You must be able to prove a material change of circumstance. For example:
- Change of income
- Loss of employment
- Significant reduction in pay
- Increase in child care costs
- Sickness of a child or a parent
- A necessary move
If a party wants to move or you want to stop someone from seeing a child because domestic violence or abuse can be proven, a modification to a child custody or visitation arrangement is necessary. I take the time to look at all of the circumstances and help my clients figure out what options will best serve their interests and rights.
