Representing Parents throughout Nassau County
Your parenting time schedule is crucial to ensure that you can see your children and maintain a relationship with them – especially if you are not the custodial parent. If your existing schedule no longer meets your needs or provides adequate visitation time, you may be able to modify the arrangement.
At Pickney Law Firm, we represent parents in Nassau County who are seeking modifications to parenting time and visitation schedules. Our Long Island visitation modification attorneys understand what this case means to you and realize the impact that the outcome could have on your family. We take great care to develop personalized strategies that yield the results you are seeking.
How to Modify Your Visitation Schedule
Once a parenting time schedule has been created and agreed upon or ordered by the court, it can be changed if a parent has a genuine reason for doing so. Only a significant change in circumstances or a potential threat to the child’s well-being can be grounds for modifications.
Potential reasons for visitation modifications include:
- Relocation for work
- Job loss or promotion resulting in a change to your work schedule
- Illness or injury
- Child request
- One parent is failing to adhere to the current parenting schedule
- Child abuse or neglect
Courts decide modification requests on a case-by-case basis and carefully assess each request. At the heart of a court’s decision is the child’s best interests. If a modification would not be in the child’s best interests, it is unlikely that the court would approve it.
