Even though a judgment becomes “final,” the court never loses jurisdiction to modify some provisions.

The dissolution is final if it withstands rehearing and appeal, but parenting, time-sharing, permanent alimony, and child support provisions may be modified when circumstances change substantially.

Final judgments may also be corrected or set aside under some circumstances.

The court can neither enter a judgment that will bind anyone other than a party nor award property owned by a nonparty.

Therefore, if one spouse seeks a judgment against a business entity that is operated or controlled by the other spouse, the business entity must be joined as a party.

A corporation must be joined if a party is requesting transfer of assets, such as a car, from the corporation.

In determining an equitable distribution of the marital assets and liabilities, the court must consider the advisability of “retaining the marital home as a residence for any dependent child of the marriage, or any other party,” if it is in the best interest of the child or party and economically feasible to do so.

During divorce, other things to consider regarding the marital home include:

– Is one spouse willing to convey all interest in the home to the other?

– Do the parties want to sell the property and divide the proceeds?

– Can the parties agree to the exclusive use of the home by one party as alimony or child support?

In any contested dissolution case not settled by stipulation or agreement, the court’s order distributing marital assets and liabilities must be supported by factual findings based on “competent substantial evidence.”

The court’s written order must specifically address the following:

(a) Clear identification of nonmarital assets and ownership interests;

(b) Identification of marital assets, including the individual valuation of significant assets, and designation of which spouse shall be entitled to each asset;

(c) Identification of the martial liabilities and designation of which spouse shall be responsible for each liability; and

(d) Any other findings necessary to advise the parties or the reviewing court of the trial court’s rationale for the distribution of marital assets and allocation of liabilities.

If a petition for dissolution of marriage is based on the allegation that the marriage is irretrievably broken, and the respondent does not deny that the marriage is irretrievably broken, the court “shall enter a judgment of dissolution of the marriage” if it finds that the marriage is irretrievably broken.

The trial court must determine, if, in fact, the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken.

The judge must determine from all existing facts whether the marriage is irretrievably broken.

If the evidence establishes that there is no reasonable chance for the marriage to succeed, a final judgment of dissolution must be granted.

In practice, most judges do not wish to make a detailed inquiry into the underlying facts.

Fla.Fam.L.R.P. 12.407 prohibits bringing a minor child to court as a witness or to attend a hearing, or issuing a subpoena to a minor child to appear in court, without prior court order, except in an emergency.

In contested cases, courts usually are reluctant to allow children to testify against their parents. The court has the discretion to preclude children as witnesses.

If a child’s testimony is needed, it is best obtained through the report of a guardian ad litem or mental health professional, or as part of a parenting plan recommendation.

If the child’s testimony is considered essential, a professional should be consulted to determine what effect testifying will have on the child.

In divorce, just because the parties have reached an agreement, it does not mean the agreement is always enforceable or will be approved by the court.

For example, parties cannot waive entitlement to temporary alimony or attorneys’ fees by antenuptial agreement.

An antenuptial agreement is subject to the existing laws of the state, including the requirement that Spouse A is responsible for supporting Spouse B while they are still married. See Belcher v. Belcher, 271 So.2d 7 (Fla. 1972)

Similarly, any agreement to waive child support would be unenforceable for public policy reasons. See Quinn v Quinn, 169 So.3d 268 (Fla. 2d DCA 2015)

One party’s need for assistance with the payment of his or her attorney’s fees when the other party has the ability to pay is grounds for an award of attorney’s fees.

For example in Meighen v. Meighen, 813 So.2d 173 (Fla.2d DCA 2002), when there was a substantial disparity in parties; income, the appellate court held that is was error for the trial court to award only half of the attorneys’ fees to be paid on behalf of the wife.
