Post-Judgment Modifications


Experienced Legal Support in Fort Lauderdale & South Florida

As life goes on after a divorce or issuance of a child custody order, individual and family circumstances are not set in stone, but rather experience changes naturally and for various reasons. A child support, child custody, or spousal support order may be subject to modification with a family court’s approval. Even property division may be readdressed if it is shown that either spouse failed to disclose all assets.

At Gladstone, Weissman, Hirschberg & Schneider, P.A., we help clients determine whether they have justification to petition a court to modify a court order or reopen divorce deliberations. At the same time, we are transparent about what the legal costs would be to bring such a petition and help clients decide whether it is cost-effective. Our attorneys have helped many people review, negotiate, and litigate post-judgment issues and obtain modification of divorce decrees.

Court orders and aspects of divorce decrees that may be modifiable include:

  • Spousal support (also known as alimony): When the paying ex-spouse has had a significant reduction in income or the receiving ex-spouse has had a significant increase in assets, there may be grounds to propose a reduction of spousal support. Also, if the recipient spouse remarries or cohabits with a new partner, the other ex-spouse may be able to stop paying.
  • Child custody and/or child support: Either parent may have a change in work schedules, health, or family circumstances that make a change in shared parenting necessary. If a child is experiencing abuse or neglect with either parent, there may also be grounds to seek a modification of a custody order. Child support is generally modifiable based on substantial changes in the income of either parent. However, the paying parent will need to demonstrate a good faith effort to keep paying as originally ordered before petitioning for a reduction in child support.
  • Property division: If hidden assets come to light, litigation may provide an opportunity to balance the score for a spouse who was negatively impacted by an incomplete division of assets. This can be expensive, but when hidden assets were substantial, it may be worthwhile to pursue.

A judge will typically make post-judgment modifications only if there has been a substantial, unforeseeable, and permanent change in circumstance or clear evidence that assets were not fully disclosed during a divorce. However, support may sometimes be reduced for a limited time due to temporary job loss.

What Our Clients Have Said

  • The best decision I made over the course of my marital separation and subsequent divorce was choosing Tova as my lawyer.

    “The best decision I made over the course of my marital separation and subsequent divorce was choosing Tova as my lawyer.”

  • I wholeheartedly recommend the Gladstone, Weissman, Hirschberg and Schneider team

    Divorce, by its very nature, is a difficult, unpleasant, and often traumatic experience. Mine was no different. When the papers were finally signed, I had been married for 40 years. Those years had been financially rewarding and dividing up of the assets was not going to be easy. The children were all grown and were productive members of the workforce so at least we didn’t have that issue. Nonetheless, it took four years from the time we separated to conclude the matter. Two and a half years to even get to the point of hiring a lawyer and then almost one and a half years to finalize. I was lucky to have received a recommendation to use Gladstone, Weissman, Hirschberg and Schneider. Both Jeffrey Weissman, the partner on the matter, and Tova Verchow, the senior associate, were incredibly responsive, smart, and never tried to make small issues into larger ones. If I wrote to Tova at 8 in the evening, I received a response that night and not sometime the next day. I was made to feel that my matter was important and that I was in good hands. I never objected to a single bill as their billing was always fair. I wholeheartedly recommend the Gladstone, Weissman, Hirschberg and Schneider team to guide you through the difficult process of divorce.

  • Mr. Hirschberg Went Above and Beyond

    “Not only was he extremely responsive and accessible, but his extensive knowledge of family law combined with a genuine concern for the wellbeing of his clients also made him a pleasure to work with.”
