Lewisville Modifications to Child Custody Attorney
Child custody arrangements are established in every divorce in which children are involved, and many of these arrangements continue unchanged until children are legally adults. However, sometimes modifications to child custody arrangements become necessary due to changes in the parents’ or children’s lives. Unfortunately, though, it can be difficult to prove that these adjustments are necessary without the help of a dedicated attorney.
Common Reasons for Modification
Modifications to child custody arrangements can be important for the well-being of the children involved, which is the primary focus of the courts. In general, the following changes may prompt a parent or the court to seek modifications to an existing child custody arrangement:
- A parent proves to be unsafe due to drug or alcohol addictions or other legal problems
- The parent or caregiver with physical custody passes away or develops health problems that interfere with caring for the child
- One or both parents decide to move
- Remarriage of one or both parents
- Child requests change in living arrangements
Whether you wish to put forward a request to modify your child custody arrangement or you need help handling another party’s wish to change the agreement, you should have a knowledgeable lawyer by your side who can protect your rights and interests during this potentially emotional situation.
