The Hurdles To Modifying Custody And Visitation Orders

When you first obtain a visitation or custody order, you may have to fight a hard legal battle. Furthermore, courts tend to shy away from modifying existing arrangements due to the potential disruptions that such changes can introduce into a child's life. Such high standards are designed to protect your children's best interests, but they don't always prove practical in the face of challenges like

  • Changing employment statuses
  • Necessary or voluntary relocations
  • Medical emergencies

Although many parents feel that their evolving circumstances necessitate custody and visitation order modifications, the courts demand that you prove your case. Our attorneys work to help you fulfill the burden of proof required for family courts to consider your request seriously. By guiding Georgia families through the process of submitting new parenting plans, we help them demonstrate that modifications would provide children with better home environments and developmental opportunities.

Helping You Build A Petition That Holds Up

Visitation and custody order change requests aren't always straightforward. Georgia courts consider numerous factors, including the parenting preferences of children above the age of 11, the living situations of siblings and whether either parent is a military service member. Filing a successful petition demands careful consideration of the realities of each case.

Every attorney at Burns Law Group, PC, is dedicated to helping you ease the modification request process. Separation is hard enough, and we don't believe you should have to experience further ordeals just to provide the best for your children.
