Do You or Your Child Need Protection from Domestic Violence?
Disagreements over child custody and visitation rights can be complicated further by allegations of domestic violence in your home. We can pursue an order of protection for you and your child. We can also defend you against false allegations of domestic abuse and protect your parental rights.
Child Custody Laws Regarding Enforcement and Modification
If one parent is failing to live up to their custody obligations, it may be necessary to seek a contempt or enforcement order to protect your custody and visitation rights. It is unacceptable for a parent to disobey orders of court, particularly when involving children.
In other situations, you may require a child custody modification if circumstances have substantially changed since the initial order was entered. A substantial change in lifestyle may make a post-divorce modification of custody and visitation schedules necessary.
If one parent wishes to move with children, or if a parent disagrees with such a request, a parental relocation order may be necessary. Any divorced parent or unmarried parent with a child custody order must consult with a qualified family law attorney before moving with children, as moving without leave or court may violate the custody order. Parents who violate court orders risk losing custody and visitation rights to their children.
