Although divorce decrees and court orders are intended to be permanent, courts understand that things change, and significant changes in circumstances often require modifications to the original child custody agreement and other aspects of the divorce orders. However, obtaining a change in your custody agreement is no simple matter. Whether you are petitioning for a child custody modification or opposing a proposed modification, it is essential to work with a seasoned attorney who has the experience, training and knowledge base necessary to protect your interests and that of your children.
Musulin Law Firm, LLC, represents clients all over the nation with matters potentially venued in counties such as, but not limited to, Mercer County, Burlington County, Camden County and Gloucester County, New Jersey, in a range of family and matrimonial law issues that include post-divorce child custody modifications and modifications to child custody arrangements relative to unmarried families. Firm founder and child custody modification lawyer Christopher R. Musulin has more than 27 years of legal experience, accreditation from the New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators, and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). In addition, Christopher guides the law firm and his legal team in staying up-to-date on the changing matrimonial laws and jurisdictional procedures. The entire legal team at Musulin Law Firm is committed to providing clients with personalized service, individually tailored solutions, and support to people with such sensitive legal matters.
Attorney Christopher R. Musulin, along with his legal team, will walk you through every step of the process involved with child custody modifications whether you are the litigant requesting the modification or the person opposing to the modification. He can help you determine whether the proposed grounds for modification would hold up under court scrutiny or if your intended modification efforts could perhaps be detrimental to your present set of circumstances. To obtain court approval, there has to be a substantial change in circumstances to justify the modification. A few examples of substantial change in circumstances can include, but certainly are not limited to, the following:
- High-conflict joint legal custody
- Relocation and moving the child out of state due to job change or other factors
- Changes in work schedules that would alter visitation times
- Illnesses and injuries to a parent that alter the ability to care for the child
- Illnesses and injuries to the child that alter the child's care needs
- Mental illness and other special needs that could alter the child's care needs
- Rehabilitation of parental fitness to handle custody
Attorney Christopher R. Musulin has a thorough understanding of the jurisdictional and legal considerations involved in modification petitions. Many colleagues refer cases of this kind to the firm, because they know that Attorney Musulin is an outstanding practitioner in this field, with a wealth of knowledge, training and experience.
