PARENTING MODIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
Parenting modifications are guided by Section 61.13 (2) (d), Florida Statutes. The best interest of the children is the primary consideration. The Party requesting modification must prove:
A substantial change in circumstances,
An unanticipated change in circumstances,
“Best interest” of the children is determined by an evaluation of factors in 61.13 (2) (d) (a-t), Florida Statutes.
The Court does not have the same degree of discretion to choose between parents seeking modification as it did for the initial determination.
