Custody Modification Lawyers Here To Handle Your Life Changes

While custody orders are designed to fit the circumstances of each parent, they do not account for unexpected life changes. If you or your co-parent are going through a significant change in circumstances such that it affects your existing child custody orders, it is possible to request for them to be modified. An experienced attorney can help you determine your next steps.

Our lawyers at The Love DuCote Law Firm LLC know the Texas courts and can help you navigate the modification process. Our family law firm is dedicated to handling family legal matters throughout Fort Bend County. No matter what significant life change you or your co-parent may be going through, we are prepared to help you and your children find the best possible custody solutions.

What To Do When One Parent Relocates

One of the most common reasons for custody modification is relocation. It could be that you or your co-parent has to move for work or to be closer to loved ones. If you and your co-parent are in a joint conservatorship or have shared custody, you may have questions about whether your children will be moving as well. If one of you is the sole conservator, the noncustodial parent may be anxious about the relocation.

With one of our lawyers by your side, you do not have to deal with these issues alone. You can be assured by our commitment to helping you stay connected with your children in a way that both you and your co-parent can agree on.

Understanding The Criteria For Custody Modification

Apart from relocation, there are many life changes that qualify you to request a modification for your existing orders. Some include:

  • When your child reaches the age of 12 and requests a change in custody
  • If one parent remarries
  • If financial circumstances have significantly changed, impacting child support
  • If child’s schedule changes significantly due to school or other activities
  • If one parent has medical needs that affect parenting abilities

At The Love DuCote Law Firm LLC, we know that every case is unique, and that you may be facing other changes not mentioned in this list. When you work with us, you can trust that we will prioritize your needs and help you transition into your new parenting plan smoothly.
