Do You Need A Custody Modification?

After a custody order is in place, it may become unworkable for a number of reasons. Life is ever changing, and the custody arrangements that once worked for your family may no longer be suitable. Either parent may request a modification. For the protection of all parties, an informal agreement is not good enough. A modified court order is essential if a change is justified.

As your trusted Maryland law advocates at Trevillian Law, our attorneys will be committed to guiding you through the process of addressing a child custody modification. You may be seeking to modify your child custody agreement or wish to protest a proposed modification by the other parent. If the court agrees with your reasons for rejecting a request by the other parent to move with the child far away, a judge may, in fact, revise the terms of a custody order in your favor.

When Is A Custody Modification Necessary?

Circumstances evolve, as do the needs of your children. You may consider petitioning for a custody modification if there has been a significant change in circumstances. This could include a change in your employment, relocation, developments in the child’s needs or concerns about the child’s well-being.

When parents disagree with a custody modification proposal, negotiations, mediation or a trial may become necessary. Ultimately, Maryland courts always prioritize the best interests of the child, and so do our lawyers. At the same time, they also represent our clients’ interests.
