Modification of Visitation

Modification of Visitation Agreements

Families undergo natural changes over time. It is unrealistic to expect that a court order or agreement made regarding parenting time when the child was four will still be applicable when the child is a teenager. It is also unrealistic to expect that the current parenting time will be in the child's best interest when serious problems arise.

At the family law firm of Gans & Gans, we provide compassionate, understanding, and experienced guidance to families through the transitions in life. We help clients request modifications, contest modifications, or negotiate modifications in parent access agreements. Contact our Bridgeport law firm for a free initial consultation.

Parenting Time Modifications

As with the initial implementation of child custody and visitation, any modifications made to parenting time must be in the child's best interests. Modification needs may arise when there are changes in custody, drug abuse problems, alcohol dependency, child abuse, changes in employment, and other individual family concerns. Although modification needs are very family specific, child visitation or access right modifications may involve:

  • Increasing parenting time
  • Limiting or decreasing parenting time
  • Denying parent access rights
  • Modifying custody and transferring access rights to the non-custodial parent
  • Modifying child support to reflect visitation modifications
