Nothing is more important than your children and the decision about who raises them. In the aftermath of a divorce, if you are seeking to have a child custody order modified, or if you need to challenge a modification, get legal help immediately from the Fresno child custody attorneys of Tomassian, Pimentel & Shapazian. For more than two decades, we have represented and served parents by handling all matters related to child custody disputes including visitation, modification of child custody orders, and enforcement.
THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE CHILD
Parents who dissolve a marriage face the issue of kid guardianship. Many parents can voluntarily reach a custody agreement that involves either joint custody or the sole custody of only one parent. Whether an agreement is voluntary or court-ordered, sometimes it has to be changed. Parents often move and change jobs; children always grow and change schools. It’s not unusual for child custody orders to be modified after several years. But if you seek a modification and the other parent is not agreeable, our custody modification lawyers will ask the court to order a modification. Courts are reluctant to modify custody orders unless you can demonstrate that the modification is in the best interests of the child. Usually, this means there has been a change in circumstances such as relocation, unemployment, or a new child born to one of the parents.
