Child Custody Modification
Some of the most difficult issues in family law involve child custody. Whether a child custody agreement involves a divorced couple or parents who were never married, the parents spend a lot of time negotiating visitation and custody schedules, and no one wants to throw all that work out the window without it being reduced to an enforceable court agreement. However, changes in the lives of children and parents can make old agreements or orders unworkable. In the most difficult cases, a parent may become unable to care for a child due to a variety of physical, mental health, or addiction based issues.
One of the more reoccurring reasons for a change in child custody is relocation. When a parent must move to a different city or state, it can throw parenting and visitation plans into chaos. If you are facing this type of situation, whether you are the parent who is moving or the parent who is not, whether you are the primary custodial parent or not, you need to speak to a lawyer. A good family law attorney can help you modify child custody in a way that respects your rights and, most importantly, the best interests of your children.
