Divorce Mediation Child Custody Modification

Child Custody Modification

As a divorced parent, circumstances could change anytime without notice and may affect how your child-custody agreement with your ex-spouse works for you. You might have to request for a modification of the child-custody plan, and at Do Divorce Better, we can help you make this happen through divorce mediation Orlando. Keeping your child custody agreement up-to-date is vital.

  • If, since your divorce, things have changed for you and you have started having issues with your ex over your child custody agreement, a divorce mediation Orlando is what you two should consider. You both need to sit down with a divorce mediator in Orlando to work things out. One of the unrealistic thoughts that most divorcing couples have is that their child custody agreement will remain the same permanently. This cannot be so; there will be times that one party will have reasons to modify the plan. Let’s see some of the reasons why child custody agreements may need to be adjusted.
  • If a child custody agreement looks like it is working for all the parties involved, most Florida courts will not consider modification of any sorts. The court will always consider the interest of the child first. Therefore, if you can show that the amendment you are requesting for is in the best interest of your child, we can help you out.
  • If you believe and have sufficient proof that your child is in immediate danger, then you have reasonable grounds to be granted child custody agreement modification. If the danger relates to your child’s welfare, for instance, being exposed to domestic violence, then it would be in the best interest of your child to take him or her out of such environment.
  • If you or your ex-spouse changed location or is planning to move. One of the parents moving to another city or state could influence the decision to modify a child custody plan. The court will check if the reason why the parent is moving and whether the move will affect the convenience of the current custody plan.
  • If your ex-spouse keeps violating the current visitation schedule and custody agreement. The court will check the reasons why this is happening. If modifying the agreement will make things better in the interest of the child then the court will consider it.
  • In case of death of one of the parents, the court will consider the capability of the surviving parent to assume full custody. To do this, the child custody agreement must be modified. Although the court prefers placing the child in the custody of the surviving parent but in some rare cases, the child may be placed with a third-party.
