Child Custody 

At Brian Andrade Family Law, we understand that life is full of unexpected changes, and sometimes, the initial child custody agreement may no longer be in the best interest of the child. Our experienced family law attorneys can help guide you through the process of modifying a child custody arrangement.

What is a Child Custody Modification?

A child custody modification is a legal process that allows parents to make changes to their existing child custody agreement. This can include changes to:

  • Visitation schedules
  • Primary residence
  • Child support
  • Decision-making authority

Why Modify a Child Custody Agreement?

There are many reasons why a child custody agreement may need to be modified, including:

  • Changes in work schedules or job locations
  • Changes in the child's needs or educational requirements
  • Changes in the child's living situation
  • Changes in the ability of one parent to care for the child

The Modification Process

The process of modifying a child custody agreement typically involves the following steps:

Filing a Petition:

One parent (the "petitioner") files a petition with the court requesting a modification to the existing child custody agreement.

Service of Process

The petition is served on the other parent (the "respondent").

Temporary Orders

The court may grant temporary orders to ensure the child's safety and well-being during the modification process.


Both parents may engage in discovery, which involves exchanging information and evidence related to the modification.


The parties may participate in mediation to try to reach a mutually agreeable resolution.


If the parties are unable to reach an agreement, the case may proceed to trial.

Final Orders

The court issues final orders modifying the child custody agreement.
