Modification Of Visitation Rights

The Information You Need To Know

Divorce cases where children are involved are always difficult and complex. For those cases where both parents are unwilling or unable to share joint physical custody of the child or children, custody usually defaults to one parent, often the mother, while the other non-custodial spouse is granted visitation rights. It is of vital importance to the development of the child to have both parents in their lives, and the state generally attempts to ensure that this is the case. You deserve to defend your visitation rights vigorously, and a Long Island child custody lawyer can help you do so.

Modifying The Custody Agreement

In some cases, however, the initially agreed upon custodial arrangements need to be modified. A variety of different circumstances can arise that require changes to be made. A non-custodial parent may have received a promotion or changed jobs, requiring him or her to move, or possibly change schedules. The child’s life may have altered, disrupting the original schedule and causing it to no longer be feasible. For any of these reasons and many more, a parent may have to change the custody agreement.

This can, however, be difficult. The court generally does not like having to change a pre-arranged agreement, even if it is for a good reason. Therefore, it is important that you retain the services of a skilled child custody attorney who can defend your rights and ensure you are able to modify the agreement as you require. Specific regulations and rules about this procedure may differ from region to region and courtroom to courtroom, which is why it is so important to speak with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney before making any decisions.
