Custody / Modification
Sometimes factors have changed since your divorce or suit affecting parent child relationship was finalized, and it is in the best interest of the children to have prior custody and/or visitation orders modified. In order to accomplish this, you need to hire a Custody Lawyer to file a Petition for Modification. If the children are being exposed to a dangerous environment, you may also file a Temporary Restraining Order and request a Temporary Orders Hearing before the Court makes a final decision regarding modification.
