Mediation For Modification of Final Judgement or Court Order

Modification Mediation offers a non confrontational pathway for amending an existing Court Order or Final Judgment.

What is a Parenting Plan?

A parenting plan is a document created to govern the relationship between the parties relating to decisions made regarding the minor children.

Experience has shown that children benefit greatly when their parents negotiate a mutually agreeable settlement.

Why you need a parenting plan:

Chapter 61 of the Florida Statutes that govern family matters requires the court to order a parenting plan in proceedings involving children.

Important parts to include in your parenting plan:

  • The parenting plan must include a detailed time-sharing schedule for the parents and the children including:

    Holidays and special occasions
    Transfer of belongings
    Right of refusal
    Notice of whereabouts

  • The parenting plan may include other issues concerning the children such as:

    Health care
    Social, physical, and emotional well-being

Research indicates that couples who cooperatively amend their own Agreements are generally more committed to and satisfied with the outcomes than those with court-ordered modifications.

As your Mediator, I impartially facilitate discussions aimed at your mutual well-being and future stability. Pre-Suit Modification is a consensual process. It will commence only if both parties agree, offering you control over alterations to your Final Judgment.

Should one party file a Petition for Modification, court protocol will direct you towards Mediation to foster mutual resolution. Should that fail, judicial decisions will be imposed.
Opting for Mediation initially can often bypass the time, stress, and cost involved in litigation.

You’ll need to weigh immediate resolution against the unknowns of extended legal proceedings. At Mediation & Counseling Consultants, we believe that only you can decide what’s best for you, your children, and your future. Over two decades, we’ve guided countless couples through pivotal decisions in emotionally trying times.

We stand by you until your amended Final Judgment is court-approved.
