The key to a parenting plan modification is a “substantial and material change in circumstances” relative to when the plan was first implemented.

The standard for what that means depends on whether you want to change which parent is designated as Primary Residential Parent (which requires a higher standard be met) or if you only want to change the parenting schedule.

Most parenting plans require that you attend a mediation in an attempt to resolve any disagreements about the parenting plan prior to going to court.

We have specific experience and will advise you of your rights and any potential risks to filing a parenting plan modification. There are also non-litigation options we can explore to help you find agreement on the issues impacting you and your children.
