Child Custody Visitation Modifications
Do you currently have a court order regarding child custody that you desire to have modified? If so, you have several options. Depending on the type of initial custody determination, you may be able to modify your current custody situation by simply filing a Petition for Modification with the Circuit Court requesting a modification.
A child custody determination made by a court is always subject to modification, it is never final. Although there is a heavy burden placed upon the petitioning parent for a modification, it is not impossible and quite easy if certain elements are met. A child custody modification is a custody determination that changes, replaces, supersedes, or is otherwise made after a previous determination concerning the same child.
If you are considering a modification of child custody or have been served with a petition for modification, it is vital that you obtain sound legal advice regarding your options.
