Periodic custody evaluations can be beneficial

Getting to the end of a divorce with a workable child custody order or agreement in place can be a great relief to a Tennessee parent. Often, individuals worry about how divorce and separation will impact their kids and finding common ground on matters related to where children will live and how they will be raised can alleviate stress and worry. Unfortunately, however, not all families are able to maintain their custody and parenting schedules. Disruptions and changes in parents and kids' lives can require them to modify their operating orders and agreements.

For example, in only a few weeks, children throughout the state will be returning to school. For those going back to institutions that they have previously attended, their schedules may not drastically change. However, kids who are moving up to new schools or whose school days will be longer may find that their parents are not available to pick them up, drop them off, or undertake other important parenting roles.

Similarly, a parent who has taken on the bulk of parenting after a divorce may need to seek a modification if they choose to restart their career or otherwise change their availability to their kids. There are a multitude of reasons why families may find that they need to change their custody and parenting schedules. When they do, they may require legal support.

Attorney Sam Byrd advises parents on how best to address the family law and child custody matters that may affect their parenting, their kids, and their futures. To learn more about attorney Byrd and his legal practice, information can be found online through the firm's page on child custody.
