Modifications to Agreements in Florida
In the midst of a divorce, it can be tempting to settle quickly in order to move on with your life sooner rather than later. While this instinct is completely natural, experienced legal counsel will always assist you in thorough negotiations, so you end up in the best financial and emotional situation possible. Even with skilled representation, however, you may occasionally need to revisit the terms of your legal agreements, and make suitable adjustments based on changes in your life.
With Buckmaster & Ellzey, you may be able to secure modification orders for:
- Child support
- Child custody
- Child visitation
- Alimony payments
- Other settlement terms
In most cases, a judge will ask to see evidence of the life changes that are forcing you to seek modification. This is why it is important to hire an attorney who knows how to position your case to make a strong argument to the court.
Reasons you may need to seek modification orders include:
- Job loss
- Child birth
- Illness (yourself or your family)
- Death in the family
- Other serious life changes
What Else You Need to Know About Modifications
The court will usually grant a modification order if you can prove significant life changes. When you are asking for a modification order related to your child, you will have to prove it is in their best interests above all else. In matters of child support, custody, and visitation especially, you must be able to prove that any and all modifications will have a positive effect on your child, especially in relation to your current agreement. If, for instance, a custodial parent asks for a court order allowing them to move their child to another state, the court may or may not grant modification, depending on whether they believe this modification will positively impact the child, and whether it violates the non-custodial parent’s rights.

Q: If I’ve Been Arrested, What Rights Do I Have?A: In our country, being arrested does not deprive you of the many rights you have as a citizen. When you were arrested, you should have been informed of your Miranda Rights. You may ask the police officer why you are being arrested and can refuse to answer questions regarding the charges. You have the right to an attorney and the right to a fair and speedy trial. Using a qualified and experienced Daytona Beach criminal defense attorney will work to your advantage in ensuring your rights are protected.
Why Should I Hire an Attorney to Represent Me?
In the case of Buckmaster & Ellzey, we have prosecuted thousands of cases as an Assistant State Attorney. On the side of criminal defense, we have defended hundreds of individuals, such as you, that have faced charges for criminal offenses. Having served on both sides gives us a unique opportunity to fight for our clients.
We understand how prosecutors operate, the types of evidence that they will bring forth and what arguments they are likely to pursue in a criminal case. This first-hand knowledge allows us to better prepare and successfully resolve cases.
What Are the Differences Between a Misdemeanor and a Felony?Generally, misdemeanors are considered minor offenses. The fines for them will be relatively small and any time spent in jail will be in terms of weeks or months, not years. A felony conviction can result in steep fines, probation, parole and prison sentences for years. They can remain on your permanent record and may adversely affect future educational and employment opportunities. With the assistance of an attorney who is willing to aggressively defend your rights, felony charges can sometimes be reduced to misdemeanors.
What Happens Now That I’ve Been Charged With an Offense?The first step will be what is known as an arraignment. A judge will tell you the charges against you and there are many decisions that will need to be made at this time, such as how you will plea to the charges, what bail will be set at and others. We understand that facing criminal charges can be tough and would like you to take advantage of our experience to help you successfully navigate through the criminal justice system.
How Are Child Support and Alimony Calculated in Florida?If you are going through a divorce, you may be concerned about how much child support or alimony you can receive or will be expected to pay. Alimony is ordered to ensure that both spouses have an equal opportunity of maintaining the same standard of living they enjoyed during the marriage. The higher-earning spouse makes payments to the lower-earning spouse. The amount of the payment is determined based on one party’s need and the other party’s ability to pay. This involves the consideration of a variety of factors, including the length of the marriage, each party’s contribution to the marriage, and the ability of the unemployed spouse to obtain work. Child support, on the other hand, is determined based on Florida’s statutory guidelines. To calculate a child support payment, the court considers the total income of both parties, minus any deductions. The child support order is ultimately determined by what amount is needed to cover the child’s basic living expenses, including food, shelter, childcare, education, and healthcare.
