Seeking modification is a common situation that many divorcees find themselves going through and a Roseville divorce lawyer can help. At the time of the divorce their rights over their children including their right to visit them may have been denied by the court due to any number of reasons. Some are not fit at the time to care for a child whether it is in relation to their job, an addiction or other circumstances which lead the court to believe the child is better off with another.
The way a person was when their divorce was finalized does not mean that is who they will always be. For many people losing the right to care for and visit their children is an awakening call. It motivates them to make the necessary changes so that they can be reinstated with those privileges. The ruling of an earlier case is not always pertinent to the situation of the day and when that is the case, the issue can be brought back to court to reassess and see if in fact they believe that changes should be made. For some, while they may not receive custody of their children back, even the ability to visit and see their children more often is reason enough to carry on with this legal claim.
For some this can also go the opposite way. They may be looking to have the other parent of the child take on more of the responsibility and through petition to the court this can be sought. Each individual case is considered to make a final decision.
