Modification of Child Custody and Visitation in St. Louis, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Columbia, Springfield, Wichita, Topeka, Tulsa, Chicago, Lincoln, and Beyond

Each family situation is unique, but when you seek a 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 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.

Parents have an opportunity to have existing child support orders reviewed by the court when they face a change in circumstances of a substantial and continuing nature, in most cases. Existing child support orders may then be recalculated based on changes to both parents’ incomes.

If you suffer a significant reduction or increase in income, seeing a family law attorney is a good idea. Your lawyer can help you make changes to existing child support orders. This can prevent unnecessary payments or enforcement actions before they happen.

At Stange Law Firm, PC, when a family law conflict requires legal action, we offer high-quality legal solutions for our clients. Our focus is on helping you move in the right direction. We do this by working closely with you to develop a family law strategy that weighs the costs and benefits of each action. Together, we take action that gets results.

We understand that our lives are constantly changing and sometimes a modification is necessary.
