For parents who are divorcing or separating, there is no greater concern than the future care and well-being of the children. Child custody matters can prove highly emotional and contentious, but it is important to approach them with the guiding principle of protecting the best interests of the children involved.
At Conmy Feste Ltd. in Fargo, we handle child custody and visitation matters for clients in North Dakota and Minnesota. We are skilled negotiators who know how to help parents work together to establish practical, child-focused legal orders. We also offer mediation services for those seeking an amicable and efficient means of resolving custody disputes.
Child Custody Modifications
When circumstances change significantly, it may be necessary and appropriate to modify existing child custody and visitation orders. Circumstances that may warrant a modification include the relocation of one parent for employment purposes, a change in work schedule, and the changing schedules and wishes of the child.
Generally, the change in circumstances must be significant to gain court approval. We have handled numerous custody modifications and know the factors judges take into consideration in these cases.
Whether you are seeking a modification of orders or trying to stop a modification you feel would adversely affect you and the child, our attorneys can provide you with experienced guidance and advocacy.
