It Is Possible to Alter a Court Order
What does a court have to do to reverse or modify a decision that was made during a divorce or a custody hearing? You will have to prove that there is a change in circumstance. According to Florida statute 61.30, there needs to be a “substantial change of circumstances for purposes of modifying the child support award.” This also applies to child custody and visitation. If you can prove that there was a change in circumstance, the court may agree to make said modification. Examples of a substantial change include:
- Change in living situation
- Loss of a job
- Increase in income
- Disability or injury to a parent
- Increase in child’s expenses

For parents who were denied custody, through visitation they can still have a positive impact on their child’s well being and can continue to strengthen their bond with their child.
