Child Custody Orders Can Be Modified, We Can Help
Modifying an existing allocation of parental responsibilities order (child custody and visitation order) is possible if there has been a substantial change in circumstances in either a child’s or parent’s life following the divorce. Not only must the change be substantial, but it also must involve a matter that directly impacts the child’s well-being. For example, a change in a parent’s work hours may necessitate a change in the visitation schedule, whereas abuse or neglect of the child by the custodial parent may require the other parent to petition for a change in custody.
