Judge Gavel

In matters of family law, the term "post-judgment" refers to legal actions or proceedings that take place after a court has issued a final judgment or order in a case. In the context of Florida family law, post-judgment matters arise when parties involved in a divorce, paternity case, child support matter, or other family-related cases seek to modify or enforce aspects of the court's initial ruling or judgment.

Post-judgment actions can occur due to changes in circumstances or disputes that arise between the parties involved. Common examples include requests for modifications of time-sharing schedules, adjustments to child or spousal support payments, enforcement of time-sharing, or addressing issues related to the division of property or debts.

To initiate a post-judgment proceeding in Florida, the party seeking a modification or enforcement typically files a Petition for Modification with the court.

It's important to note that post-judgment proceedings can be complex, and it is advisable to seek the guidance of an experienced Family Law attorney to help navigate these legal processes effectively and protect your rights.
