Modifications & Enforcements in Brevard County

It would be ridiculous to assume that the situation you once found yourself in will remain the same throughout your life. There are many things that may change: you may find yourself with a new job, moving to a new town, or have children that are getting older and moving out of the house.

When can my support payments change?
Requests for modification of agreements must be formally made to the court in the following circumstances: child support payments, spousal support or alimony payments, child custody, and child visitation agreements.
Some factors that accompany this change of payment include:
- Loss of job
- Loss of income
- Increase in income
- Change in amount of parenting time
- Decrease or increase in children’s expenses
The purpose of any support agreement if to ensure that both parties are protected and can care for any children that they have together. Since the original agreement was developed after a careful and close analysis of your family’s situation, the change in circumstance must be severe enough to warrant an alteration.
