Family Law judgments can be modified depending upon the nature of the award in the judgment. Child support and alimony awards in Florida are subject to modifications. To obtain a modification of child support or alimony in a Final Judgment, the person seeking the modification is required to file a Supplemental Petition for Modification. This Supplemental Petition is required to be served upon the opposing party. Read: Have You Been Served with a Supplemental Petition for Modification in Tampa Bay?
To prevail in a modification action, the person seeking the modification must prove that a substantial change in circumstances has occurred since the judgment was entered. The change in circumstances must be permanent, involuntary, unanticipated and material in nature. If the Supplemental Petition for Modification is granted, any increase in child support or alimony could be awarded retroactively to the date when the Petition for Modification was filed.
