When Will Modification of Alimony Be Granted in Florida?

Modification of Alimony in FloridaA modification of alimony may be granted where: (a) there has been a substantial change in circumstances, (b) the change was not contemplated at the time of the final judgment granting a divorce, and (3) the change is sufficient, material, permanent, and involuntary. In Jarrard v. Jarrard, the Florida Court of Appeal reversed a trial court decision in which the lower court denied the husband's Supplemental Petition for Modification of Alimony. The appellate court reversed the lower court's ruling because they found that the husband had met his burden to establish a sufficient, material, permanent and involuntary substantial change of circumstances that was not contemplated at the time of the final judgment granting the divorce.
