Motion to Modify Custody or Parenting Time

If it is in the best interest of a child, then it is possible to modify the parenting agreement in place. However, it is simplified when you seek this as a parenting time modification as opposed to custody. If you want to argue for modification of custody, then you may need to prove that the child may be in danger in their present environment or, that you have integrated the child into your home with the other parent’s explicit consent.

Spending time with your children is one of the most important things as a parent and we at the Goldstein Law Office understand this. If your circumstances has changed or if you are concerned about the welfare of your children, then now is the time to act with a post decree motion to modify custody or parenting time.

Motions to Move Out of State

Out of state moves can be difficult in the best of situations without having to worry about how this will impact your alimony, child support or child custody. If there is a custody agreement in place, you generally cannot pack up and leave the state without first filing a post decree motion. The courts will decide what is best for your child, whether he or she comes with you or continues to primarily reside in the state of Minnesota. Motions to move out of state, also require an agreeent or court decision regarding vacation time, out of school time and holidays.

Motions to Modify Child Support or Spousal Maintenance

Modifying the amount of money that you pay or receive for child support or spousal maintenance is completely possible, especially if the circumstances change. If you change jobs, if your spose remarries or if your parenting time changes substantially, then you may be a candidate to bring a  motion to modify spousal maintenance or child support.
