Orem Attorneys Helping Parents With Modifications
As life changes, child custody and visitation, child support and spousal support orders may need to be modified. At Featherstone Family Law, we help clients obtain modifications so yesterday’s legal orders reflect today’s life. Located in Orem, our attorneys serve clients throughout Utah County.
Modifying Child Custody, Visitation And Support Orders
When children start spending more overnights with the noncustodial parent, one spouse loses his or her job or starts making more money, a modification of child custody, child support or alimony may be necessary. In addition, individuals can petition the court for a modification when they want more parenting time or want to change an existing custody or support order.
At Featherstone Family Law, our lawyers help clients get the modifications they need to protect their interests and the interests of their children.
Relocating With Children
Sometimes life events — such as job opportunities and family commitments — make it necessary to relocate to another city or state. When minor children are involved, relocation often triggers modifications to custody and visitation arrangements.
In Utah, when parents relocate more than 150 miles from their child’s other parent, they must provide advance written notice. If custody or visitation arrangements will be impacted by the move, a new agreement must first be reached.
When parents move away with their children, non-relocating parents are often worried their relationships with their children will suffer. At Featherstone Family Law, we help parents protect their parent-child bonds. We work hard to seek equitable modifications that ensure our clients get adequate parenting time. In some cases, a change in primary physical custody may be necessary.
