Adjusting Parenting Plans to Match Your Circumstances

What Causes Child Custody Modification?
When parenting plans are created, they are created in response to a parent's existing situation. Any substantial change in one parent's ability to pay or visit the child can be cause for modifying the existing parenting plans. There are numerous things that can cause the need for modification, including:
- Loss of job
- Promotion or substantial raise in salary
- Remarriage or cohabitation
Our lawyer works with clients in custody and visitation, scheduled time sharing and child support modification and contempt cases. If you think your child's other parent might be seeking to bring a contempt suit against you, it can be beneficial to seek modification beforehand. Pro-actively seeking modification offers you more control of the situation and the possible choices.
If your situation has changed and you are seeking modification, you are responsible to uphold the existing arrangements until the court has given you permission to act in a different manner. Contacting an attorney quickly can help save you money. To schedule your free initial consultation, contact our firm online or call 407-426-7808.
