Is your current parenting plan/timesharing schedule just not working anymore, and you cannot resolve the situation with the other parent?  Has your financial situation or the financial situation of the other parent improved or unfortunately downgraded?   If so, then you need to speak to a lawyer to discuss your specific situation.  In order to be granted a modification of an existing order, you must prove a “substantial change in circumstances”.  In order to modify a parenting plan/timesharing schedule, this change must be substantial, material and unanticipated, and the modification must be in the best interest of the child (see Fla. Stat. §61.13.)

In order to request a modification of an existing child support order, the difference between the current monthly obligation and the amount provided for under the guidelines shall be at least 15 percent or $50, before the court may find that a substantial change in circumstances exists.

Proving a substantial change in circumstances can be very confusing for a layperson, please contact our firm at 321-329-5449  ext 6 to schedule a consultation today.
