Child Custody Enforcement and Modification
In an ideal world, all custody agreements would be mutually agreed upon by both parents and both your lives could continue to run smoothly after a divorce. Unfortunately, this is not the case for many couples. Sometimes the other parent does not follow through with visitation agreements, keeping you from your child and potentially putting the child in physical or psychological danger. This is when an enforcement order is necessary. Enforcement will compel the other parent to abide by the terms of the agreement at the risk of fines, jail time or both.
In other cases, schedules and lifestyles change, which can make custody agreements difficult or impossible to follow through with. If this is the case, you will have to make a modification to the predetermined agreement. Oftentimes, parents can work this out on their own, but when the other parent disagrees, the modification will have to be taken through the court.
