Custody Modification Lawyer

Modifying a child custody order is often an intensive process. It requires obtaining court permission, which in turn requires presenting new evidence and legal arguments. The party seeking a modification must establish that a significant change in circumstances warrants the change. This can be a difficult standard to satisfy.

Professional legal guidance is critical in any type of child custody matter, but particularly in seeking or opposing modification.

Florida Law Governing Modification Of Custody

Florida law provides that, for purposes of modifying parental responsibility or a time-sharing schedule, the best interest of the children shall be the primary consideration. A determination of parental responsibility, a parenting plan, or a time-sharing schedule may not be modified without a showing of a substantial, material, and unanticipated change in circumstances and a determination that a modification would be in the best interests of the children.

Determinations concerning the best interests of the children are made by evaluating all of the factors affecting the welfare and interests of the children and the particular circumstances of the family. Presenting strong and detailed evidence relevant to the children's best interests is therefore essential.
