The Importance Of Getting Child Custody Right The First Time

It is common for clients to come to us during a divorce or separation and say they want to keep the other parent from ever seeing the children. In other cases, we see clients who are well past the time of their divorces and they want to modify their existing child custody orders to better accommodate their changing lifestyles.

It is important to note that it is extremely difficult to keep your spouse from having access to the children. While we do represent clients in modifications, it is no simple process to get the courts to sign off on a child custody modification. The only situations in which the courts will readily agree to keeping a parent from seeing their children is if there is abuse, neglect or related issues in play that are not isolated incidents, or a substantial change in circumstance has occurred. Otherwise, the courts will usually lean toward leaving custody and visitation arrangements as they were in a previous order.

For this reason, it is critical to make sure to handle child custody and visitation matters correctly the first time. We can help make sure your children are taken care of and that your interests are met in the parenting plan established in your divorce.
