One of the first things a divorcing couple begins thinking about is child custody. By law, the judge will grant custody according to what is best for the child.
Your divorce was finalized two or three years ago when your children had different needs. Now, you want to change the child custody or visitation agreement to better reflect your current situation. In general, if both parents agree in writing to the changes, you may not have to go to court to change the agreement. However, when you and the other parent cannot agree or there is serious interference in your visitation schedule, you may need to take the matter before a judge.
One very important aspect of divorce for many parents is the decision on child support and custody rights. Sometimes, the court's decision on these matters no longer works if your life and circumstances change. It is possible to modify child support or custody decrees if there is a valid reason to do so.
There are two kinds of divorces: a divorce between two people who don't have any children, and those couples who do have children.
