Why a Child Custody Agreement May Need Modification
The court will not be eager to modify a child custody agreement it once
approved. Everything the court decides must be in the best interests of
the children involved in the
family law case, and so changing a preexisting custody agreement could jeopardize the
child’s comfort and peace of mind. It is your job to show the court
that the modification will not disrupt their best interests, but instead
uphold them. Our family lawyers are here to help you create your argument,
and we can even act on your behalf before the court to present it.
Reasons why a court might approve the modification of a child custody agreement include:
- Custodial parent must relocate dramatically for employment.
One parent has become abusive or violates
visitation and time sharing agreements.
- Child has matured and no longer enjoys spending time with one parent.
- Financial changes has made it difficult to maintain primary child custody.
