Modifications to Child Custody
Baton Rouge Child Custody Attorney
Nothing in life ever stays the same and sometimes an arrangement that was
once workable, is no longer appropriate to the current situation. You
may have a situation where a child custody agreement may have been perfect
for all parties involved at one time; however, one of life's little
surprises came along and has made it necessary to make changes. People
can lose their job, find it necessary to move for one reason or another,
or have medical issues that pop up without warning.
When life throws a curve ball and you find it necessary to change an existing
child custody agreement, contact an attorney experience in family law
matters to get this process started. At The Layfield Law Firm, Beau Layfield
is dedicated to helping families through these complicated and often difficult
times. Beau is committed to do whatever he can to help make this process
go as smoothly as possible.
After a divorce is finalized and all the decisions are made, it can feel
like all the dust has settled, which can result in divorced couples getting
comfortable with each other and making small adjustments to custody agreements.
When everyone is getting along, it may feel unnecessary to go through
the hassle of making these changes official through the appropriate legal
channels. This situation works fine until old wounds are opened and tempers
flare. Even though one party may have thought the relationship was relaxed
and friendly, that party may suddenly be faced with an angry ex-spouse
threatening to go to court for violating a child custody agreement.
Regardless of whether you and your ex-partner are usually the type of couple
to work out issues agreeably on your own or the type that can't be
in the same room together, it's a better option to seek legal counsel
when modifying child custody agreements. By working with Beau, you will
get the benefit of his plentiful experience in helping other parents in
