Modifying And Enforcing Existing Family Law Court Orders And Agreements
Post-Judgment Modifications In Florida
Parties must sign an agreement before they can finalize their divorce or paternity matter.
However, such decrees are never set in stone; parties may be able to adjust or alter these agreements after their case is finalized under certain circumstances, such as:
- A significant change in material circumstances, like relocation
- A change in financial circumstances, like a job loss or employment status
If you wish to seek a modification to an existing family law agreement, you must petition the court. However, seeking the guidance of a family law attorney is advised, particularly with children’s issues.

Enforcing Court Orders
An ex-spouse can also seek to enforce an existing agreement or court order if the other party fails to abide by its terms.
If the paying spouse or parent either falls behind on court-ordered payments or refuses to pay them, you can seek involvement from the court. A family law judge has discretion in how to proceed with enforcement action. Incarceration, fines and loss of parenting time are not uncommon actions courts can and do take, under the appropriate circumstances.
