When parents’ divorce, they come to an agreement regarding the custody of the children they have together. The judge makes the custody agreement part of the court order, usually called a permanent custody order, and you and your former spouse are required by law to follow what is in place. Generally, parents share custody with the children living primarily with one parent and having visitation with the other. You may wonder whether you can make changes to the child custody order after it is put in place. A knowledgeable family law attorney will guide you through the process.
