Custody/Visitation

After a divorce or determination of paternity, situations arise which require a change in custody and/or visitation. Once a custody determination or agreement has been ordered by the court, the standard for determining custody and visitation changes. While the best interest of the child is still taken into consideration by the court, the petitioning party must show the court that there has been a material change in circumstances from the time the last custody order was entered. That material change in circumstances must have a detrimental impact on the child or children and the court must determine that it is in the best interest in the child for a change in custody.

Visitation changes arise when the current visitation schedule is no longer practical due to a move, change in work position, or other issue. The court will again look at the best interest of the children and what will provide the most stable environment for the children while maintaining a relationship with both parents.
