Post-Divorce Issues in Jacksonville

Jacksonville Modification Attorney

At Jason K.S. Porter, P.A., we understand that a divorce agreement that once worked may no longer fit your lifestyle. You may feel a need to change child support amounts as well as alimony, custody and other issues as your life changes and develops, which is why you could benefit from a Jacksonville modification lawyer at our firm. Petitioning for a modification of orders is a legal way to change your divorce agreement, but this petition will likely be denied if you do not have the proper evidence to meet the modification criteria.

Guidance from a Dedicated Law Firm in Jacksonville

The Jacksonville modification attorneys at our firm can guide you through the process so that you can present a valid, well-prepared petition for modification to be considered by a family law judge. If you are looking for a divorce modification, you may be doing so because you have had a major change in life circumstances. For example, you may be charged with paying a large sum to both your ex-wife for spousal support (alimony) as well as a sum to your children for child support.

If you recently had a change in occupation, you may qualify for a modification of these orders. If you have been unemployed for an extended period of time or have taken a pay-cut, then you may be seriously struggling financially. It is important to note that bankruptcy cannot remediate your child support, alimony or related family court-decreed debts. Filing for a modification of orders may be your best option.

    "Mr. Porter was so nice and explained everything in a way that I could understand."

    When I got into an accident, I didn't think I needed a lawyer. However, everything was so confusing and the insurance company was being very pushy. Once I decided I needed to contact a lawyer, I wasn't sure who to call. On the recommendation of a friend who had used him in the past and had a very good experience, I called Jason Porter. I was given an appointment the next day and it was during that appointment I knew I had contacted the right law firm. Mr. Porter was so nice and explained everything in a way that I could understand. He assured me that I would not need to do anything but to get better and he was right! He and his amazing paralegal handled everything so I didn't have to deal with all of the confusion of the insurance company while trying to heal from the injuries I sustained in the accident. Ultimately my case was settled with the insurance company and I received a very fair settlement. I am hoping I never have to use a lawyer again, but if I do, I will definitely be contacting Mr. Porter again.
