MODIFICATION: The court recognizes that circumstances change over time. It is not uncommon for people to modify their court orders after a period of time has passed. If you are looking to modify a pre-existing court order, I will help you prove to the court that you have experienced a substantial change in circumstances in order for a modification to be warranted. I understand that your children come first and that providing a stable environment and balanced routine for them is number one priority.
ENFORCEMENT: When one of the parties disregards the court’s orders, Florida law gives the judge the power to enforce his or her legal ruling. When a party in your case fails to comply with a legal order, such as payment of support, I can petition the court on your behalf to enforce the judgment already entered.
Divorce mediation is a voluntary process where divorcing couples work together with a trained mediator to negotiate and resolve their differences in a non-adversarial forum. In mediation, no one decides who is right and who is wrong, or who wins and who loses.. For many divorcing couples, mediation has become a viable alternative to the financial costs and emotional toll of traditional adversarial legal representation. Sensibly used, mediation provides the opportunity to find fair and realistic solutions to the economic and practical issues facing the family. Mediation is based on the premise that the people getting divorced are in the best position to make decisions that will have long-term personal and financial consequences on their lives.
