It is common for parents to seek and obtain modifications of child custody and child support, for reasons including the following:
- The parent in possession of the child or children presents a need to move out of the area. Reasons may include financial hardship, a job change, a family situation (such as elderly parents in need of care in another community) or remarriage.
- The parent who receives child support believes that the other parent should pay more because of an increase in income.
- The parent who is paying child support believes that child support should be reduced because there has been a decrease in income
Our Law Firm Can Offer Advice on an Allen Custody Modification
Do you wish to remove the residency restriction that was part of your child custody and visitation court order? Or do you wish to contest the removal of your child or children from your area by the other parent? The Rachel Firm is a valuable source of information and help when there is a good reason to seek — or to contest — a court order modification.

Child relocation and custody modification proposals are often difficult legal problems. The parent who will be "left behind" may rightfully believe that parent-child bonds will inevitably weaken if the custodial parent and children move away. The parent who seeks to have a residency restriction lifted, however, may believe that the move will be in the child's best interests.
The Rachel Firm has a legacy of compassionate, honest legal and counsel and representation for parents seeking or opposing modifications.
