Montgomery County Custody Modification Lawyers — Plans To Fit Your Family
As children age, and work and lifestyles change, the amount of time a child spends with one or both parents may be different than the arrangement laid out in the original custody order. In some circumstances, it may be necessary to modify the custody and visitation order to better reflect today’s living circumstances.
When a child’s living situation changes, a modification to the child support order may be needed. When children start splitting their time between households, or the noncustodial parent becomes the primary caregiver, child support orders may be modified. In addition, any change in parental income — an increase or decrease — may be a catalyst for an adjustment in child support payments. A future divorce or the birth of a new child may also affect support obligations.
At Shriver & McLean, L.L.P., we help clients modify their custody and support modifications to reflect the reality of living and working situations.
Preserving Long-Distance Parent-Child Relationships
When family commitments, job requirements or other opportunities make it necessary, or desirable, for one parent to relocate to another state or county, child custody and visitation schedules must be modified.
In Texas, the laws regarding whether a parent is allowed to relocate with his or her child depend on whether there are any restrictions in the original custody order. If restrictions exist, the relocating parent must obtain court permission before moving. If no restrictions exist, it is still necessary to modify visitation agreements to reflect changes in visitation time and costs of transportation.
At Shriver & McLean, L.L.P., we represent both parents who wish to relocate and those who do not want their child to move away.
The choice to relocate affects the entire family. Together, we will help you modify your child custody and visitation schedules so one parent’s move does not result in the breakdown of parent-child bonds.
