Modifying Parenting Time

A parenting plan (visitation schedule) can be modified to increase or decrease the amount of parenting time a caregiver has with the child(s).


A modification may be granted if you can show to the judge that there has been a change in either caregivers capacity to care for the child(s) since the original parenting plan was ordered.


Additional reasons to modify parenting time include:


  • your parenting time was restricted, or you would like to restrict the other parent's parenting time

  • you were denied parenting time in the original parenting plan; or

  • you or the child's other parent are planning on relocating from their current residence
