The lawyers of Hofland & Tomsheck are committed to offering practical legal advice and trial advocacy without sacrificing results. Working with the firm’s experienced family law attorney, Attorney Brad Hofland, eases your stress and helps you obtain the winning strategy to modify child custody and visitation orders.
Once custody has been established either through agreement or court order, parents may seek court involvement to modify the established arrangement if they cannot agree to a change. In order to support a request for a change the parent seeking the modification must show a substantial change in circumstances and the modification change is in the best interest of the child. Additionally, states that follow the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act will only consider requests for modifications if they occur in the state where a child has an established residence in order to prevent forum shopping and custody motivated child removals.
