The article includes several interesting pieces of information, one in particular, is that the risk in not involving the court in making changes to parenting time and/or child support. This should be of particular interest because changing parenting terms and times without official legal documentation can have serious consequences. As life circimstances change so should the agreements which impact the lives of those affected. The temptation though is often to do-it-yourself, precluding the cost of having a lawyer involved. This can lead to unforseen complications and ultimately in even more legal fees to rectify the situation in the long-run.

One of the most important pieces of information the article tries to convey and communicate is that parents should go to court when changing parenting time. The best example of this is perhaps found in the following extract:

‘In most divorce cases or cases involving the allocation of parental responsibilities, there is usually a child support order issued by the court. Those obligations, as orders of the court, are not modifiable except with another order from the Court.’

In discussing the article’s creation, Sergei Thomas, Family Attorney at Thomas Law Group said:

“The risks in not involving the court in changes to parenting time or child support, can be significant.”
