Modification of Visitation in Long Island, New York
While a visitation agreement is a legal court ordered arrangement that must be followed and enforced, it can be changed if the circumstances warrant it. You may have been promoted or moved to a different job that has different demands on your time. Your child’s schedule may have changed and therefore your visitation schedule does not work as well as it did. There are various reasons that may warrant a modification of visitation, and a
