Law Office of Kevin L. Beard, P.A.

Is it time to make a change to your visitation agreement?

A divorce agreement -- especially when it comes to custody and visitation -- can be changed at any time if the proper circumstances present themselves. Indeed, circumstances change in life, and sometimes these changes necessitate an update to a custody or visitation agreement. If legitimate evidence exists to warrant the change, the court will grant the modification.

Here is the kind of evidence that might be sufficient to warrant a modification:

-- One of the spouses is moving a long way from the other spouse.

-- The spouse paying child support has received a significant increase and/or decrease in income.

-- The other parent is not appropriately supervising the children.

-- Due to an illness suffered by the child, more money is required for his or her care.

-- A child and one of the parents are in constant conflict, the child cannot be controlled, and it's felt that it would be better for the child to live with the other parent.

-- The new spouse of the other parent is harming the children because of how he or she is raising them.

-- Physical or sexual abuse against the children is suspected.

-- Current divorce agreement arrangements are not working.

-- A modification is in the best interest of the children involved.

Maryland parents who need to modify their child custody or child visitation agreements may want to discuss the matter with a lawyer. At the Law Office of Kevin L. Beard, our lawyers examine the facts and circumstances surrounding you and your ex-spouse's divorce agreement and current situations to determine the best way to pursue the modifications that are desired.
