Modification of Child Custody and Visitation in St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbia, Springfield and Beyond
Each family situation is unique, but when you seek modification of an existing child custody and visitation order, things can get complicated. At Stange Law Firm, PC, we use in-depth knowledge and years of experience to help our clients make or oppose changes to existing court orders.
Many of the people we represent face necessary modifications to child custody orders as their children age or as their families change. When needs are different, court orders must often be changed to meet them.
Our clients also include parents who plan to move outside of the state of Missouri or outside of the distance allowed by an existing court order, as well as parents who must protect their custody and visitation rights when another parent moves away.
In move-away cases, courts generally retain continuing power — jurisdiction — over child custody orders they create. Court approval is often needed before a move can be properly made. If not, parents may put their time with their children in jeopardy.
