At Hartley Law Office, PLLC, our professionals know that the only thing in life that remains constant is change. Sometimes, it's pervasive changes that lead Dayton couples to end their marriage and get a divorce.
At the moment a court grants a divorce, many arrangements are locked in by the court, including child custody. Perhaps the arrangements are something both partners agree with, or can at least live with. One or both may be unhappy with the child support arrangements, but a court will only modify a child custody arrangement if a parent can present a convincing argument as to why such a modification is in the best interests of the child.
Aaron Hartley, the lead attorney at Hartley Law Office PLLC, knows that family circumstances don't stay frozen in time as they were when a child custody order was entered. One parent may suffer an injury or illness that limits the ability to care for the child; another may have to move out of the area for a job opportunity. There are many changes in circumstances that can justify a request for a child custody modification. And a change to a visitation order may not even require such a change as long as both parents agree to it.
Aaron Hartley is himself a parent who has experienced the changes that accompany a divorce. The professionals at Hartley Law Office, PLLC have experience supporting parents both during and even after a divorce, when it becomes necessary to revisit the decisions that were made and possibly seek a child custody modification.
