Once you`ve received orders, you`ll collect information to prepare for the possibility of change. Track the time each parent spends with the children, keep a child care book, record conversations with the other parent, etc. Parents may be required to renegotiate parts of their education contract every two and a half to three years. If parents accept the changes, they can amend their order by agreement. But if the parents can`t agree on the changes, one of the parents must file papers in court to request a change (a “change”) of your custody and access order. If you want to change your order, you and the other parent will probably need to meet with a mediator to discuss why you want to change the order before going to trial. A court will consider why a parent would consider changing a child care regime before ordering a change to the current custody order. Before the hearing, many courts refer parents to mediation to promote an agreement. If a parent is accused of abuse or other safety concerns, the court could order an assessment.
Under an agreement or custody order, parents or the court may restrict the ability of the legal guardian to move with the child. An agreement could, for example, say that the parent of persons with liberty must provide a specified period of time before moving or that the parent of those who have liberty could be prohibited from leaving the state. You can ask a judge to change a custody, visit, child care or medical support order by submitting a change. For example, if you say in your agreement or court order that you share your time with the children during the summer, a parent coordinator can help you find a summer schedule. For major changes and all the effects on child care, you have to do both. Give your consent to the court with an uncontested request for amendment and any evidence. If so, a judge will consider the application at a hearing. For more information on changing child care, see the specific guidelines for child custody in your state or an interview with a qualified lawyer in your state.
