Custody and Modifications

Life’s circumstances continuously change, and in some instances, it’s necessary to modify a previous custody agreement. The change may be necessary because of one parent’s desire to move to another state, because of certain circumstances. At the Law Office of Joanne P. Monagan, Esq., we provide straightforward advice and representation for legal issues involving custody modifications.

Attorney Joanne P. Monagan has more than 20 years of experience in divorce and family law, and has a proven track record handling child custody cases. She is results-driven, focused on advocating for her clients and reaching effective legal solutions. Regardless of the unique circumstances of your case, Ms. Monagan is ready to provide strong representation.

What You Need to Know About Custody Modifications

Changing a custody agreement can be a very straightforward process, especially if both parties agree to the change.  A verbal agreement may not be  upheld in court, so you need to make sure you are represented by a lawyer.

Modifying shared custody and visitation schedules, or dealing with modifications that involve relocation or out-of-state circumstances, are all issues we have experience in handling. We explain the legal standards and the factors that will be considered by the court in fashioning  a decision.
