Custody Modification

Child custody arrangements should serve the best interests of the child or children involved, providing for a stable living environment and allowing for a good relationship between the child and both of his or her parents. If you are a parent, the law allows you the opportunity to modify an existing court order if your circumstances have changed in one of a few significant ways that could bear on the best interests of your child or children.

One of the most common reasons for modifying a child custody order is relocation. Following a divorce, one parent may want or need to move for a new job, to be closer to family, or for another purpose. A "move-away" — or a change in your kids' needs, or another event or development — can trigger the need for a change to your court order. Our firm can help you address the issue of post-decree modifications.
