Child custody modifications

If circumstances change and a modification to an existing child custody arrangement is required, it’s vital to discuss the situation with a family law expert to ensure you fully understand your options and rights.

If your custody modification case is uncontested, it could be a relatively easy process, but if both parties aren’t in agreement, you may be in for a tougher time. There are many rules and regulations governing a change in child custody orders, but all of them revolve around what is in the best interests of the child and many involve a material and substantial change in circumstances. This could involve a temporary custody arrangement for a military parent who is actively deployed or a permanent change stemming from domestic or child abuse.

Regardless of the reason, we can help you determine whether your circumstance constitutes a material and substantial change and how best to approach the court with your request, as well as properly complete all forms, correctly draft legal documents and prepare you for the hearing.
