The new year is the perfect time to review your child custody order to ensure that it sets your child up for the best year possible. Many parents don’t realize that you have the option of modifying these orders as the child gets older and their needs change. We know that the process of modifying the custody order can seem daunting, but we are here to help you get it done.

The parenting time schedule is something that you need to go over now. You can write out the plan for the upcoming year on a calendar. This can be quite helpful when it’s time to plan events like family vacations. There might be some changes to the schedule as the year progresses, but having the basic outline to which you can refer can make your life much easier.

There are other aspects that also might need to change. For example, if you have rules that are consistent for both homes, such as bedtimes, you may need to go over these and work with your ex to adjust them to fit your child’s current needs.

If you and your ex are working as a team to raise the children in a functional co-parenting relationship, you might need to get together to discuss the upcoming year. This gives both adults a chance to set goals and work together to get the year started off on the right foot.

We are here to help you find solutions to issues that you can’t work out, including those that might require court intervention.
