In most cases, a divorce is not “final,” even after the terms of the divorce agreement have been finalized. There are many events in a person’s life that can require changing or modifying the terms of the divorce agreement.

If you need to modify the terms of your child support, alimony or time-sharing arrangements, contact Alan Robert Burton, Attorney at Law. If you oppose a proposed support modification or other change to your divorce agreement, I can also represent you. I maintain an office in Boca Raton, and serve clients throughout South Florida.

An Experienced Boca Raton Divorce Modification Lawyer for All Issues

In order to be successful in pursuing a child custody modification or alimony adjustment, you must show that there has been a “substantial change in circumstances.” A substantial change in circumstances could entail many things, such as a job loss, a promotion, or a serious health problem that prevents you or your ex-spouse from working.

If you want to modify child custody and time-sharing arrangements, you need to establish that the modification is in the best interests of your children. Relocation issues involve the modification of a divorce agreement. These issues are usually highly contested. If you want to relocate with your children, you must take a number of steps in order to obtain permission from the court. If you oppose relocation, you have rights as well. In either event, I am able to represent your interests. I have more than 40 years of legal experience and have represented parents on both sides of this issue.
