Successful Post-Divorce Modification
June 15, 2021 – When a couple with children divorces, they receive not only a decree of the divorce but also a parenting plan that covers parental responsibilities and physical custody. Sometimes, parents have to revisit these orders. Changes to a divorce decree are called a post-decree modification. And that’s why this client reached out to our Family Law Team.
In this particular case, a father wished to obtain residential custody of his child. Our client believed he could provide a more stable home for the child who needed ongoing support for psychological issues that he felt were not being entirely addressed at the mother’s home.
The court agreed and awarded our client residential custody and resolved the issues pertaining to the child’s therapy.
