Southwest Florida Modifications Lawyer

Life's events can call for changes that require you to go through the legal system. Family law matters, such as changes to support obligations or custody, can have a drastic effect on your family. If your circumstances have changed since the entry of your court order you may need what's called a "modification."

While it is not necessary for you to work with an attorney to handle a modification, your chances of getting the modification approved by the court are much higher if you work with a competent family law attorney. Aloia, Roland and Lubell, PLLC, can help. Our team serves clients throughout southwest Florida and offers you comprehensive legal solutions that are tailored to meet your specific needs.

Changes After a Divorce

While a divorce decree is meant to be a finalized document, certain circumstances may arise that call for changes. Instances that may warrant a modification could be the loss of a job, an increase or decrease in your salary or the salary of the other parent, or a significant change to the timesharing schedule being exercised by the parents.

In order for the court to support a modification you need to demonstrate a "substantial change in circumstances." You need to petition the court and advise exactly which portions of your order you are seeking to change, as well as outlining the reasons for which you are seeking the modifications. Working with a lawyer with in-depth knowledge of family law is imperative in these instances to achieve those goals.
