At the Law Office of Smith & Horwitz we understand that custody arrangements frequently need to be modified or enforced, and we are prepared to assist clients in these areas. Modification requests often arise in situations where one parent wants to move away with the child or where the child has aged enough that his or her needs have changed.
As co-chair of the Custody Committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association, Elaine Smith devotes significant time to reviewing child custody laws involving modifications and enforcement and helping other attorneys understand them. At our law firm, we stay up to date of all legislation changes to give our clients the best chance at obtaining a favorable resolution in court.
Let us help you. Contact us today online or by telephone at 215-545-2880 or toll free at 800-854-8065 to arrange a consultation with one of our experienced Philadelphia family attorneys.
Child Custody Modifications
Circumstances after divorce change and child custody orders may need to be modified to reflect the present-day reality. Circumstances which may call for a modification of custody orders include:
- Relocation of either parent
- Change in income/employment
- Changing needs of the child
- Changing wishes of the child
If you are seeking a modification or trying to stop your ex from making an unfavorable change, our lawyers can help protect your rights and the best interests of your child.
Child Custody Enforcement
We also assist clients who are seeking to enforce existing child custody or parenting time arrangements. If your child's other parent is refusing to abide by your order, seek out our assistance.
