Allocation of Parental Rights and Responsibilities
Divorce is forever, a divorce agreement does not have to be. When you divorced, you entered into a legally binding agreement that would control your future, your property and your relationship with your children. The decisions reached about custody and support were based on the circumstances that existed at the time of the termination of the marriage as we all know, circumstances change. The best resolutions that were presented during your divorce case or at the time of your divorce may no longer fit your life. It is for that reason that a reallocation of parental rights and responsibilities is now necessary.
Mariellen has assisted many clients in the post decree modification of shared parenting plans, child support and other Court ordered agreements made at the time of divorce.
When contemplating filing for the Reallocation of Parental Rights and Responsibilities there are some important factors to consider such as changes in employment, income, marital status, relocation, age of the child(ren), or you may find that you and your ex-spouse cannot effectively work under the terms of the existing agreements.
