upset parents discussing parental guardianship before divorceAs a parent going through a divorce or separation, the last thing you want to think about is modifying parenting plans. However, life is unpredictable, and circumstances can change, requiring adjustments to be made.

Parenting plans are created to establish the rights and responsibilities of each parent regarding the children. As children grow and circumstances change, you may face a situation where you start to wonder how to get a modification parenting plan completed. In this blog post, we will discuss the possible modifications that can be made to a parenting plan and how Gordon Law Group can help you through this process.

Modifications to Parenting Plan in UT

In Utah, a parenting plan can be modified when a significant change in circumstances affects the children’s welfare. Examples of significant changes can include:

  • Relocation: If one parent is moving out of the state or more than 150 miles away from the other parent, a modification may be necessary to adjust visitation schedules and other parenting arrangements.
  • Changes in work schedule: If one parent has a significant change in their work schedule, such as a new job or shift changes, this can impact parenting time arrangements. Modifications are necessary to meet the child’s needs or visitation rights.
  • Changes in the child’s needs: If a child develops a medical condition or a new special need, a parenting plan may need to be modified to address these new circumstances.
  • Changes in the parents’ lives: If a parent remarries or has another child, this can impact the existing parenting plan.

Remember, every modification to parenting plans is done in the children’s best interest. At Gordon Law Group, our Heber family lawyers know how difficult these changes can be, but you can rest assured that we will always do our best for you and your children.
