Divorce Lawyer Serving the Residents of Lancaster & York, PA

Child custody involves both legal and physical custody. After custody has been determined, over time there may be a change in circumstances that will require a modification to the original custody agreement. Any changes in custody must be reviewed and approved by the court. The court will agree to a modification if there is a valid reason for the change and if it is in the best interests of the child.

Once the court has received a petition for medication, a hearing will be scheduled to discuss the matter. Unless a modification is being requested due to child endangerment, abuse or similar reasons, the court will want to know that both parents agree to the proposed changes.

An attorney from our office can help you and your former spouse come to an agreement regarding custody changes, and provide experienced representation at your hearing. We are well-versed in family law, and can give you the personal and professional help you will need when petitioning for a modification.
