Modification of Child Custody

Child Custody Orlando & Central Florida Child Custody Modification Lawyer

Divorce is difficult, and when children are involved, it becomes even more difficult. At Adams & Luka, our child custody modification lawyers understand that while custody orders are generally agreements that remain in place over the long-term, there are occasions on which the terms of the agreement must be modified. While both parents may agree to changes in parental time-sharing, the modification should be made legal in family court by the judge in order to avoid complications at a later date. Whether you are the parent the child/children spend the most time with, or the parent paying support, it is important to speak with a highly experienced attorney who knows what is necessary to first determine if a modification will likely be possible, then to work toward the desired goal.

Parents who desire a change be made to the original agreement must have a very compelling reason to have an agreement modified. The courts closely scrutinize any reason for changes to custody to ensure these changes would not be to the detriment of the child/children. These reasons may include:

  • A custodial parent has his/her working hours changed substantially
  • Drug or alcohol issues - the custodial parent develops substance abuse issues, or seeks to modify visitation because the other parent has these issues
  • A custodial parent is moving a substantial distance away, out of state, or even out of the country

Ultimately, it requires a substantial or significant life change for the court to agree to modification of child custody. This is why it is vital to obtain the legal guidance and support of a divorce attorney who is highly familiar with the process and laws necessary to obtain your desired results.
