Modification of Custody Orders

After a child custody order has been created, it is still open to modification. We can assist clients in seeking the modification of a child custody order. We can deal with seeking the enforcement of custody and visitation rights as well.

Relocation

One issue that arises frequently is relocation. This means that one parent, the primary physical custodian, is seeking to move out-of-state with their child. This situation often arises after a custody order has been established. A relocation must be addressed as soon as possible to ensure that the custody order is properly modified and that the move is the child's best interests.
