Keep your child protected with the help of a child custody order
We recently discussed what happens when a parent abducts a child. This situation is very scary for the parent who is left wondering where their child is located and if their child is safe. While there isn’t any surefire way to prevent this from occurring, parents who think that their ex might do something like this should take steps to try to protect the child. We know this can be frightening for you, but you must be proactive to help keep your child protected.
Child custody orders must keep the best interests of the child in mind. If you have proof that your ex is planning something, you should alert the court so that the order might be modified to reflect the need to keep the child safe. This could include your ex having only supervised visits with your child.
Having a child custody order modified can’t be done for no reason. With this in mind, you must ensure that you have a valid reason to seek the modification. We can help you to determine if your case meets the requirements for having the custody order modified.
Child custody modifications aren’t limited only to situations in which the child is in danger. These modifications can also help to resolve other child custody issues. They can help parents to have the child custody order changed so that it meets the needs of the child as he or she grows older. Think about how different the needs of an infant and a teenager are. Now you can see why you might need to have the order modified.
