We strive to resolve all family law issues in the most efficient way possible, such as through skilled negotiation. As experienced trial lawyers, however, we are not afraid to aggressively seek what is best for our clients and their children in court.

Call our office at (509) 204-9993 or contact us online for a free consultation about your case.

Modifications to Existing Parenting Plans

A parent who wishes to modify a current parenting plan must prove that a substantial change in circumstances has occurred which make the modification necessary. The change must be in the best interests of the child. For significant changes, the parent seeking the modification must request and appear at a hearing. At the hearing, both parents are allowed to make their case in support of or in opposition to the proposed change.

Courts will generally allow a modification to a parenting plan if:

  • Both parties agree to it
  • The custodial parent has allowed the child to live with the other parent for a significant amount of time which is not per the current plan
  • The child’s current environment under the existing plan is unsafe and could result in harm
  • The other parent has been held in contempt of court for violating the current plan or has been convicted of interference in the current plan

Modifications to Child Support

Modifications to child support may also be sought when significant changes in circumstances have occurred for one or both parents.

Examples of circumstantial changes may include changes in income, changes in the health of a child, or changes in a parenting plan that result in the child spending more time with a parent than previously.
