Modification Of Parenting Plans Kent Lawyer

Modification Of Parenting Plans In Kent, Washington

Minor visitation and custody modifications, such as changing visitation days to accommodate your daughter's soccer schedule are not complicated and two parents can usually handle the change themselves. Major modifications, such as changing the primary custodial parent, usually end up going through a trial. That's where you need the assistance of an experienced family law attorney.

Forms, Forms, Forms

The Washington courts website lists more than 20 forms and worksheets that need to be filled out when you seek a change in visitation or custody modification. And that's just the paperwork aspect of the process. As the petitioning parent, you must demonstrate to the court why the change is necessary and how it will benefit your child. As with the original custody agreement, any change must be made with the child's best interests at heart. Your wishes and desires are secondary in the court's eyes. Based on my experience as a lawyer who works in family law, I can tell you if your request for modification is viable.

Modifying Visitation

Your visitation rights may be limited if you have abandoned your child for an extended period, physically or emotionally abused him or her or assaulted or sexually assaulted your child and caused bodily harm. If you have a history of domestic violence or have been convicted as an adult sex offender, time with your child may be limited. Visitation modification is not easily accomplished. A substantial change of circumstances has to occur before the court allows a change.
