Houston Modification of Visitation Lawyers
With over half of marriages in the U.S. ending in divorce, and a large percentage of these divorces involving children, establishing a visitation agreement is an important issue for many divorcing couples. Visitation agreements stipulate where a child or children will predominantly live (parent with physical custody), and what the “visiting” hours and days are for the other parent (legal custody only). However, factors that once were pertinent to establishing these agreements may change, necessitating modification of visitation rights.
While our lawyers at Holmes, Diggs & Sadler know that many people in Houston become frustrated and stressed when dealing with visitation agreements, particularly when modifications are being made, we also believe that you have certain parental rights that need to be protected. Whether you are seeking the modification of visitation or your ex-spouse is trying to make changes that you do not agree with, having the support of a skilled attorney can help you better ensure you get the agreement you feel is best for you and your family.
Reasons for Modification of Visitation Agreements
Your visitation agreement establishes the days of the week or times of the year that you or your ex-spouse can see your children. However, as circumstances change, these agreements may need to be modified. Some common reasons people seek modifications of visitation include:
- Abusive actions from one or both parents
- Relocation of one or both parents
- Modifications to divorce settlement
- Abuse of stipulated visitation hours
Each of these circumstances might necessitate a change in the visitation hours of your divorce settlement.
