Modifications of a Court Order

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 custody, visitation rights, 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.
