When A Child Custody Modification Is Necessary, We Are Ready To Help

Children are caught in the middle of a divorce. Loving parents want to spend as much time as possible with their children, and that’s when the courts determine the best arrangements for child custody. However, child custody agreements can change as part of the post-divorce modification.

Because situations in the lives of the parents or the children change, then it’s a necessity to revisit the child agreement and make revisions that are in the best interest of the child. This is the time when you need a skilled, caring, empathetic and knowledgeable family law attorney. McNelis Law, P.A., in Bartow, Florida, is led by attorney Stacey H. McNelis, who has 18 years of experience guiding families in legal matters.

Caring, Compassionate And Assertive

Stacey H. McNelis grew up in Bartow and the knows the community and the people who live in it. And she understands just how important your children are to you. She has represented many clients in child custody modification cases.

If the current child custody agreement no longer works, then you can seek a modification. Courts will always take into consideration as to what is in the best interests of the child. Among the reasons that child custody modifications are made include:

  • If you believe the child’s life is in danger. This can surface in ways that include if the child has expressed his or her unwillingness to stay in the other spouse’s home or credible evidence of domestic violence in the other spouse’s home.
  • When one spouse chooses to relocate a long-distance away. The court will consider factors such as whether the parents made an effort to revise the visitation schedule, whether the child’s life will be disrupted as well as the primary reason why one parent is relocating.
  • If one of the parents does not abide by the current child custody arrangement.
  • If the custodial parent dies, the court will determine whether it is realistic and, in the child’s best interest to live with the noncustodial parent.

You want your child to have the best life possible. If changes in the child custody agreement are necessary, then so be it. We will help you make the right modifications.
