Need An Initial Custody And Time-Sharing Order? Need To Change One?

Most often, the need for a child custody and visitation (time-sharing) order comes up because the parents are getting a divorce. In other situations, however, the parents are unmarried or have a domestic partnership agreement. In such cases, the child's legal parentage may be clear or it may need to be determined through a paternity proceeding. We can help you develop an appropriate custody and time-sharing order in any situation.

As time passes and your children grow, you may find that your initial order is no longer appropriate. Perhaps one parent needs to move out of state, or maybe the child is considering going to boarding school. If circumstances have changed substantially since your initial order was put in place, you can petition for a modification of that order. We can help you present that petition effectively so your order better reflects your real circumstances.
