Providing The Answers And Solutions You Need As A Parent
If a parent does not have primary custody of the child and is moving away, a petition can be filed to modify the visitation arrangement. Arrangements must still be made to allow him or her parenting time with the child and provide a clear understanding of how transportation will take place.
If a parent is moving from the area and has primary custody of the child, the situation can become more difficult because the child will be relocated from his or her school and familiar surroundings. Modifications must also be made to the custody and visitation plan to ensure that the remaining parent still receives sufficient time with the child.
These situations can often result in contentious disputes, requiring the court to intervene and make a determination. Our lawyer will zealously advocate on your behalf to protect your parental rights and the time you are allowed to spend with your child.
When a custody or visitation decree is modified, it often changes the amount of support to be paid. We can help you modify the child support order, too.
