Modification of Custody Orders Helping You Get Back to What Matters Most

Queens Child Custody Modification Attorneys

Keeping Your Child’s Best Interests in Mind

Because change is only natural, there are a number of situations that can occur that can make you as a parent want to alter your existing child custody order. However, because the court’s priority is your child’s best interests, modifications can’t be made unless you can prove a change would improve the life of your child. At Levi Divorce & Family Law Attorneys, principal attorney Natalie Markfeld and our team of child custody modification lawyers in Queens have years of experience in seeking modifications to orders of custody. We know the court system inside and out, and can help you make your case for changing your current situation.

Want to make a change to your child custody arrangement? Contact us online now, or call (718) 215-0121.

When a Modification Is Beneficial For Your Child

Generally, child custody orders cannot be changed, so as to not confuse or disrupt the child’s life in any way. When an order of custody is created, it’s put through enough consideration and thought to ensure that what is decided on is the best possible outcome for the child. However, there are select cases in which modifying the existing order may be beneficial.

Child custody modifications can be made if:

  • Your child is in danger due to domestic violence or negligence
  • Your co-parent isn’t abiding by the existing visitation schedule
  • Your co-parent dies
  • Either parent relocates to a distant location

Your child’s safety comes first, and they need to be in the care of someone trustworthy. As the parent, you also have the right to spend quality time with your child. Our team can provide counsel in seeking modifications.

Putting Children First

In some cases, when a child grows up, they may want to spend more time with a parent and ask for a modification. If your child has expressed that they’d like to spend more time with you, you can petition the court for a modification. Our attorneys understand what can sway a court judge to approve or disapprove a petition and can help you in fighting for the modifications you want.
