I originally had a child support order established in a florida county. A few years later my ex wife filed for divorce in a different florida county. There was a "notice of related cases" filed with both counties. My ex wife decided to seek a child support modification along with the divorce. in the final judgement for dissolution of marriage, the magistrate decided that there should not be a change in support. Now a year later, my ex wife is requesting a modification of child support review again with the original county. How often can a order be reviewed by law?
Whenever there is a statutory basis for doing so. It could be every week, although that seems unlikely. If however, your ex does not really have a basis, but keeps filing to harass you, you might eventually be able to get an order that she not do so. That would be difficult to get in a family case however.

There is no set limit on when someone can petition for a modification, but without a substantial change in circumstances, a modification cannot be entered.
