At Nix Law, P.A., our attorney can help you request modifications in your child support and alimony obligations that more realistically reflect your ability to honor them.

Child Support

With the help of an attorney, you can ask the court to reduce, increase, suspend or stop child support payments if there has been a "substantial change" in your circumstances.

A substantial change commonly includes:

  • Job loss
  • A decrease or increase in salary
  • A dramatic increase in child expenses

Additionally, under new child support laws, if your child is with you overnight 20% or more of the time, you may qualify for reduced child support.


Alimony is determined primarily based on "need" and "ability to pay." The judge takes into consideration several other factors, as well.

Some relevant factors are:

  • If you lose a job or have a significant decrease in salary
  • If you become ill for a prolonged period of time
  • If your ex remarries or is cohabitating with another partner

Co-Parenting Plans

Co-parenting plans can be modified when there is a substantial change in circumstances and the requested modification is in the best interests of the children. When one parent must relocate or move to follow a job, for instance, more creative time-sharing arrangements can be made; rather than a traditional arrangement, you might want to block out times like summers and vacations. Additionally, Florida law provides that when a parent refuses to honor the time-sharing schedule, the other party may seek modification, in addition to other remedies.

Helping Our Clients Pursue an Amendment to Their Case

In any request to make modifications to child support, alimony, or time-sharing agreements, Nix Law, P.A. can dramatically increase your odds of obtaining a favorable outcome.
