It is important you hire a lawyer with the experience to make sure your rights and your child’s best interests are protected.
Often parents find themselves seeking to modify a previous child custody order. There are many factors that lead to filing a modification. The test whether an order needs to be modified is if there has been a material and substantial change in the circumstances of the parties. There could be a change in your or the other parent’s life that requires the visitation schedule or child support to be modified. It could be as simple as your child has grown up, therefore the previous order is no longer workable.
Requesting a modification often requires the same knowledge and expertise as an original child custody order. It is important to hire a lawyer with the experience to make sure your child’s best interests are protected.
