We can help if you are seeking to modify custody or visitation. To modify an existing order, you must prove that there has been a significant change of circumstances.

Changes to a visitation schedule are sought on a variety of grounds by parents, including changes to a work schedule, the changing needs of children and other factors. While minor or moderate changes to a visitation schedule are more easily obtained than a change of custody, there are a number of reasons why a change of custody may be warranted.
