Taking care of your children is likely a priority in your life. You don’t want anything to happen to them and you want them to be happy. When you are going through a divorce, you might find that these are difficult goals to meet. We understand that you only have your child’s best interests in mind as you fight for what you feel is right in the child custody order.
One thing that you need to realize is that you can’t think too far into the future when you are working on a child custody agreement. What will work for your newborn now likely won’t work in the elementary school years. What works for your grade school child isn’t going to work for a teenager. This is why it is possible to modify child custody orders.
We realize that you might hate the thought of having to go through all of the child custody negotiations again; however, you shouldn’t try to force your child to fit into an order that clearly isn’t working. We can help you learn about the child custody modification process so that you are ready to address the issues as they come up in the future.
If you are in need of a modification of child custody, you need to take action right away. The longer you put off the necessary changes, the more your child might suffer. Knowing that your child suffered while you sat back to relax might be more than what you can deal with. The easy answer to this is to utilize the modification process when necessary.
