Child Custody Modification

Child Custody Modifications in Henderson, NV

Modifying A Current Child Custody Agreement

Child custody arrangements made at the time of divorce or separation take into consideration a family's current situation. While they do provide some flexibility for changing circumstances, sometimes the change is so significant that it warrants a modification of the original custody order.

It is important for parents to remember that only a judge can order a child custody modification and that, even when parents agree to a modification, the court must be approached for approval. At Ford & Friedman, we know which steps to take in this process and how to ensure that a compelling and effective argument for a modification is clearly put forth on your behalf.
