Do you need to change your child custody arrangement? If the current court order no longer works for you, then you must seek a modification order. To obtain this result, you will need to consult with child custody attorneys. In the video, a family law attorney provides some insight into the kinds of questions you should ask yourself before you come to meet with them.
These questions are the ones a judge will ask, and the attorney you work with can help you develop good answers for them.
Here are some of the questions. What has changed in your life or circumstances that require a modification order? This can be something dramatic, such as the imprisonment of the other parent, or something simpler, such as you or the other parent moving out of state.
What specifically do you want to change? Perhaps you and the other parent now have joint legal decision-making and you want to change the agreement so that you have the final say. Or, you may want to change the parenting schedule. No matter the changes you propose, you must come prepared to demonstrate how it is in the best interests of the child. Now you know some of the top questions to ask child custody attorneys.
