Law firm for Custody Changes or Modifications of Parenting Plans
One certainty in the years following divorce or resolution of a paternity case is that circumstances will change for both parents and children. Some changes are financial in nature, calling for either a reduction or increase in support. Other problems are more challenging to assess and resolve — such as a parent’s refusal to abide by the visitation schedule, a parent needing to relocate or other necessary revisions to the parenting plan.
What Changes Are Needed to Protect Your Children and Your Time With Them?
When parents cannot resolve serious disputes over children’s upbringing and welfare amicably on their own, we step in with measured, reliable legal guidance. Points to consider include:
- Seeking a change of custody (a court-ordered custody modification) is almost always a time-consuming and hard-fought endeavor. To succeed, we must typically present strong evidence that children are suffering or at risk.
- Many disputes over visitation time and children’s evolving needs can be resolved by re-structuring the parenting plan in a way that works for both parents. For example, new work and travel demands for either parent may necessitate this type of modification.
Our team of lawyers is committed to finding the most practical, affordable ways to restore calm and order for divided families. If you adamantly believe that modifying child custody is the only acceptable answer, we have the knowledge and experience to fight for that outcome. More often, we can propose specific changes to the parenting plan and get new orders formalized and made enforceable.
