Because families and circumstances change over time, custody and parenting time arrangements must often be revisited and revised through a custody modification action. Custody may be modified by a judge if there has been a material change of condition that substantially affects the welfare of a child. Visitation or parenting time can also be modified every two years upon showing that a proposed change is in the best interests of the child regardless of whether there has been a material change of circumstances substantially affecting the welfare of the child. If an emergency arises, or one parent plans on relocating then a modification is likely necessary. If you considering filing for a modification or have had a modification action filed against you, Brezel Family Law, LLC is prepared and capable of assisting from you.
