Custody Arrangements Can Change Quickly and Often Roswell, GA

Custody arrangements should suit both parents and guarantee the well-being of any children. It can take considerable negotiation, compromising and potential legal intervention to come to agreements. However, kids will ultimately benefit from the efforts of any adult parties involved.

If you, an ex-partner or spouse experiences a change of circumstances, it could impact any custody arrangements. This is not necessarily an unwelcome development and may, in fact, enrich the lives of children. Where reasonable adjustments to a current arrangement are requested, it helps to make the process as painless as possible.

Career Changes
Career-related changes are one of the most common triggers for a requested adjustment to a custody arrangement. If either parent starts a new job with different hours, revisiting agreed-upon schedules is not unusual.

While being accommodating shows maturity and is often in the best interest of children, adults also deserve fair treatment. Discussing these issues openly and establishing boundaries early on can avoid any confusion. A one-sided arrangement creates more losers than winners.

Moving Home
If one party to a custody arrangement decides to move home, you may need to amend a custody arrangement that has provisions based on location. There is also the risk that travel time will make it impossible for a parent to meet previous commitments.

In many cases, moving home can result in the need to completely rethink custody arrangements. Relocating within the same neighborhood is unlikely to cause any issues. However, relocating out-of-state or to another country could mean having to completely rethink how custody is shared.

Change in Circumstances
It is important to note that all relevant changes of circumstances are considered under the law when it comes to a legal arrangement. That does not mean you will achieve your desired outcome. It simply means that if you pursue recourse through legal channels, all arguments are considered according to whether they have merit or not.

If you are currently engaging in conversation with an ex-partner or spouse about amending a custody arrangement, seek legal advice. Rowsey & Stelter, Attorneys at Law can provide advice and representative services in Roswell, GA, today.

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
