Sometimes people want to change or modify their child custody and visitation but they do not want to go to court. They may not have the money to pay a lawyer to go to court for them. Can this dilemma be resolved? Yes. You can try to modify your child custody and visitation arrangement without going to court.
In order to do this, you will need to come to an agreement with the other parent. If you and the other parent are both on the same page and agree on what the change should be, then you can write up the agreement that you have made and ask the judge to sign that and make it a court order. If you need help writing up your agreement, an experienced family lawyer can help you with that. The lawyer will not even have to see the judge to get this done.
Frequently, when child custody and visitation change, child support will change as well. If you and the other parent agree on what the new child support should be, you can put that in your agreement as well. By reaching agreements as to all these issues, you and the other parent will save a lot of time and money.
