Sometimes factors have changed since your divorce or suit affecting parent child relationship was finalized, and it is in the best interest of the children to have prior custody and/or visitation orders modified. In order to accomplish this, you need to hire a Custody Lawyer to file a Petition for Modification. If the children are being exposed to a dangerous environment, you may also file a Temporary Restraining Order and request a Temporary Orders Hearing before the Court makes a final decision regarding modification.
- Petition for Modification of Custody and/or Visitation
- Temporary Restraining Order in emergency situations
- Child of a certain age can tell the Judge which parent they prefer
- Court may order a Social Worker to advise the Court on Custody

Consider Mediation As An Alternative To Court
Taking your divorce or custody dispute to court can feel like airing your dirty laundry in public. Furthermore, resolving family disputes in court can take months or even years, and court fees can quickly add up. Almost every court requires mediation before hearing a contested case. Who better than a certified mediator representing you at mediation?
Attorney David E. Cazares is also an experienced family law mediator who has helped many couples settle their differences. He will be there by your side fighting for you and can help you explore whether mediation is right for your situation.
In mediation, you, your spouse and a neutral mediator will negotiate the issues at hand. The goal of mediation is to settle on a compromise without the stress and expense of going to court.
Keep in mind that mediation is not the best option for all situations. If mediation doesn’t seem right for you, David is fully prepared to protect your rights and interests in court.
