Experienced Lawyers Offering Custody Modification Advice in Florida
At Staples, Ellis + Associates, PA, we help clients obtain custody modifications after experiencing a significant change in their lives. We carefully listen to our clients' situations and personalize our service to meet their unique needs and goals.
Custody modifications cannot be made without convincing a court there is good reason to do so. Tom Staples and H. E. Ellis Jr. are adept at making compelling arguments in front of a judge and persuading the court that modifying a divorce order is necessary. For example, a change to your custody arrangement might be possible if you or your former spouse:
- Becomes seriously injured or disabled
- Receives a significant change in work schedules
- Wishes to relocate, or has relocated, to another city or state
- Loses a job
- Interferes with the other parent's visitation or custody rights
- Shows signs of being an unfit parent
It is important to note that a child's preference is rarely accepted as the sole reason for modifying a custody order. It can, however, serve as one of the many factors a court might consider before issuing their decision.
