Modifying a Parenting Plan
Posted on Sep 13, 2011 3:00pm PDT
While creating a parenting plan can be difficult, modifying one can be
even more troublesome. However, it is possible to seek a
modification of parenting plan under the right circumstances.
In order to successfully change your parenting plan, you will need to explain
to the court how your circumstances have changed. There are different
reasons why individuals need to modify custody agreements, such as a change
in employment, a
need to relocate or simply that increased need of a child to spend time with the other parent.
If you cannot reach an agreement with your former spouse/partner on your
own, you may have to employ a
Jacksonville family lawyer to represent you in Florida family court. Keep in mind even if you both
agree to the modification of parenting plan, it must be approved by a
judge. A verbal change in the parenting plan is not sufficient; should
something arise in the future, a judge is likely not to recognize a verbal change.
If you would like to make changes to your parenting plan in Jacksonville,
