Modifications of Final Judgments

Modifications of final judgments in Florida family court are designed to be very difficult to obtain.  Florida Statute §61.13 holds that to successfully modify a final judgment, the party seeking the modification has the burden of proving that there has been a substantial change in circumstances and that such substantial change:

  • is significant;
  • is related to a material issue;
  • was involuntary, (meaning that it was not the fault of the moving party);
  • is permanent, (meaning that it is unknown when the change will end); and
  • was not contemplated by the court at the time it entered the final judgment.

Whether you are seeking to modify a final judgment or your goal is to prevent a final judgment from being modified, Butash Law Group can help.  Our experienced and hardworking attorneys and staff are focused on achieving the goals of each of our clients.
