Seeking Child Custody Modifications?
Child Custody Modifications are fairly common. Over time, people’s lives change. If your custody case, access (visitation) schedule or child support no longer work, you have the right to petition the court to modify your agreement.
I’m family law attorney Rachel Li. For more than a decade, I have helped local families make changes to their custody and child support agreements. I know how to move your petition through the legal system efficiently. And I understand what judges expect in the way of justification.
Avoid Costly Litigation
When there’s a significant change in the post-judgment circumstances of one or both parents, modification of an existing child custody order may be warranted. Circumstances may require one party to obtain the court’s approval through a formal modification to the existing child custody order.
In many cases, modifications can be arranged between the parties, either through mediation or by common-sense negotiations. I’m family law attorney Rachel Li. I can advocate for your position and help you reach and amicable settlement. After reaching a settlement, I’ll formalize and present the agreement to the court for final adjudication.
Requesting A Child Support Modification
Under specific circumstances, the courts are authorized to modify previously ordered child support, either raising or lowering it. With more than a decade of experience to draw upon, I will explain your rights in such circumstances and can, if appropriate, advocate on your behalf for the court to modify the current child support order.
Opposing A Child Support Modification
On the other hand, if you feel that the original order should not be changed, but the other parent is requesting a modification, I can advise you on your rights and help you present to the court your reasons why the current child support order should remain as is.
Geographical Restriction & Child Relocation
If you were awarded custody of your child and need to relocate to another community, you may be under a residency restriction. You will need permission from the court to relocate the child outside of the current geographical restriction. I have extensive experience working with clients on both sides of the relocation issue.
