Fifth District Reverses Retroactive Modification

The Fifth District Court of Appeal reversed today in Buhler v. Buhler, a case where the Former Wife sought retroactive modification of support beginning with the date that the Former Husband ceased taking additional visitation he was awarded under a previous decree.  The lower tribunal granted the modification, but retroactive only to the date of filing of the petition seeking the modification.  The Fifth District reversed on the basis that it was mandatory that the retroactive modification begin on the date when visitation was found to have ceased.
