Berkeley Parenting Time Modification Attorney
Changes to Child Visitation in Divorce in Northern California
The courts understand that time brings changes in people's lives. A parenting time agreement that once worked for both parties three or four years ago, when the children were young, may no longer benefit the parents or the children. Perhaps a job opportunity requires a new work shift that changes the available time to be with the children. Military deployment may be another factor that results in needing a change to an existing parenting schedule.

I am California law attorney Martin "Jamie" Elmer. I have seen many changes to child custody law and visitation law during my 30-year career.

Whatever you need in the area of modifying your existing parenting time agreement, my law firm is ready to help.
A Note About Modifications Because of Custodial Parent Relocation
In today's world of social mobility and economic turmoil, it is not uncommon for a custodial parent to petition the courts to move with the child to another community, across the metro area, across the state or nation, and even overseas. The requirements for approving a relocation petition [often referred to as a move-away petition] can be complicated and require specialized expertise. In most cases, I can help you find a common-sense solution that will work for the child and parents — always keeping the best interests of the child — and the parenting rights of both parents — as a top priority.
