In Florida, a divorce is referred to as the Dissolution of Marriage and it is considered final and enforceable. In some instances, certain parts of the final judgment of the court can be modified by filing a Petition for Modification when a substantial change in circumstances has occurred. These include:
- Child Support
- Child Custody
The equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities (property division) as outlined in the final judgment cannot be modified.
Florida law is very specific as to what constitutes a substantial change as well as what conditions must be met to determine if the requested petition qualifies for modification.
