Has your custody arrangement changed, or need to change, and you want to modify custody or support?

Child Custody
Child Custody

Things change! Lots of changes happen that can, or should, result in a modification of your existing child custody arrangement and/or child support order. Sometimes, one parent remarries and moves out of the area; sometimes one parent loses his or her job, or gets a substantial raise; sometimes, one parent gets a DUI, or starts using drugs and/or gets arrested or jailed; sometimes, for whatever reason, the children start spending substantially more time with the other parent. The rules for modification require that there has been a material and substantial change of circumstances since the date of the last order. Keep in mind, the court does not make retroactive changes/orders, so if things change… don’t wait. Unfortunately for you, attorneys will require a large retainer just to start a modification ($1,500 to $2,500). We are a non-attorney legal document preparation service, and our typical fee is $250.
