Do You Need To Modify Your Child Custody Rights?
Are you seeking a modification to your parental rights, parenting time or the decision-making power you share with your children’s other parent? When parenting time is being set in a divorce or in a standalone legal proceeding, the court tries to craft an agreement that will work for everyone involved. No one benefits from a plan that is shortsighted.
Times and circumstances change and a parenting time agreement that was a perfect fit may no longer fit your circumstances.
Considering The Best Interests Of The Child
When it serves the best interests of the child, the court is able to grant modifications regarding:
- Parenting time – Parents have a set schedule for spending time with their children. There are many issues that can cause a change in parenting time, such as the child being more than 14 years old and asking for the change, drug or alcohol abuse on the part of a parent, and domestic violence.
- Decision-making – Frequently, parents share the right to make decisions regarding the child’s upbringing. Courts, however, can reconsider this arrangement if it serves the best interests of the child, and take decision-making power away from a parent.
