Modifications of a Tampa Court Order
Post-Decree Modifications in Tampa, Florida
Divorce is the termination of a legal union, and it commonly results in
a series of court orders which are decreed by the judge to assign rights
and responsibilities to each of the parties. In the months and years following
your divorce, it is inevitable that life will change for you and your
ex-spouse. When the terms of your divorce settlement put strain on your
new lifestyle, it is important to seek a modification to the relevant
court orders so that you are in compliance with the law as you adjust
to new situations.
The most common court orders which require modifications include those
which define the terms of
child support and
spousal support. While you and your ex-spouse may be able to come to new agreements on
these issues, verbal contracts of this nature are not legally binding,
meaning that you will not be able to enforce any changes made out of court.
Further, because court orders are legal documents, you may be held in
contempt of court if it is discovered that you failed to comply with the
order. An experienced Tampa divorce lawyer from the Law Offices of Manuel
Fajardo can assist you in pursuing any modification to a court order after
your divorce. You may also need representation against your former partner
if they are unwilling to comply with your modification request.
