Can custody/time-sharing rights be modified in Florida?
Yes, you can modify your timesharing schedule and parenting plan if you can agree with your ex-spouse. However, if you cannot agree with your ex-spouse, you’re going to have to go back to court and modify the final judgment. To go to court and modify the final judgment is a pretty harsh task. You’re going to have to prove to the judge that there is a substantial change of circumstance since the entry of the final judgment. To do that, you’re going to show what the change is and after you show the judge what the change is, you’re going to have to show the judge that this is in the best interest of the child. This is a bit simplified. You need to talk to an attorney to figure out if there is a substantial change of circumstance.
