Child Custody Modification
Child Custody Attorney in Beaufort, SC & Charleston, SC
Sometimes life changes after your original custody order, and sometimes those changes affect your child.
If you believe changing your custody order would be in the best interest of your child, we may be able to help. In South Carolina, to modify child custody, you must prove:
- A material change in circumstances;
- The change in circumstances happened after your original order; and
- The change substantially affects your child’s best interest.
There are many reasons why a custody modification may be appropriate and doing so is based on your unique, individual situation. Before we agree to help you, we will sit down with you to learn about your child, your family, and why you are considering asking the court to modify your custody order. If we believe you have a good case, we will get to work. If not, we will tell you the truth, and help you think about alternative ways to help your child.
Custody modifications can be emotional, costly, and time consuming, but they are also worth the effort when it means advocating for your child’s best interest.
