As a result, a divorce is never truly final and many divorcees find themselves facing post-divorce modifications at least once.

Regardless of the reason for the modification, you will need to enlist professional, compassionate legal assistance to guide you through the modification process.

The New Hampshire courts make the child’s best interests the priority in cases regarding modification of child custody, child support , or visitation arrangements. If for instance, one parent interferes with the rights and responsibilities of the other parent to the detriment of the child’s wellbeing, the court may order a change in parental privileges. Also, if evidence demonstrates that the living conditions with the custodial parent is no longer beneficial to the health and development of the child, the court will likely agree to modify the original arrangements.
