When divorced parents come to an agreement on custody and financial arrangements, it may not be permanent. Life changes. Circumstances change. Jobs are found. Spouses get married again. When things change, custody arrangements need to be revisited.
At Neal Ashmore, we emphasize the family part of family law, even in post-divorce hearings. Our attorneys have experience in child custody modifications that take various forms, including:
- Relocations involving job transfers, layoffs, remarriages, or care for elderly parents
- Different schedules for new jobs, promotions or other changes
- Unfit parents involving drug abuse or a prison sentence
- Special needs of a child, including medical conditions
Regardless of what side we are on, we protect the rights of our clients. If they are pursuing a valid modification, we will build a strong case based on the facts. If we are disputing a change in custody, we will aggressively stand up for the rights of our clients while looking out for the best interests of their children.
Many modifications are completed through simple negotiations. Each side understands the issues that lead to the change and find agreement. However, if a modification is under dispute, we are always prepared to take the case to court.
