Tucson Child Custody Modification Attorney
A child custody agreement between you and your now ex-spouse is based on specific factors at a specific time in both your lives. Change continues as life continues for both of you. A new job may take the custodial or noncustodial parent out of the state. An alcohol or drug problem may put children at risk.
Hector Montoya: Pima County Visitation Modification Lawyer
Modifications of custody, parenting time and legal decision-making authority agreements are mostly litigated as the court adheres to strict parameters. Options exist for an evaluation by a court-approved psychologist for custody/parenting time and relocation. Securing a professional’s insight is an expensive proposition.
While children are evaluated psychologically, a major part of a parent’s psychological evaluation involves possible drug, criminal or domestic violence issues.
Challenges Faced When Alcohol And Drug Abuse Are A Factor
Parents often confuse custody with parenting time. Having primary physical custody does not mean that one parent can be denied access. Parents with drug or alcohol problems may be provided with supervised visitation.
At the Law Office of Hector A. Montoya, P.L.L.C., Hector Montoya shares the court’s focus on the children’s best interests. Parents dealing with addiction will face obstacles in parenting time with their children. A controlled area is required as opposed to the privacy of a home. Getting the help necessary to recover from those problems can result in getting parenting time back.
