Alternative Dispute Resolution of Custody or Support Modification

If the current parenting plan is not working or circumstances require a change in financial support, there are two options. You can sit down with your ex to work out a new agreement or you can go before a judge and take your chances.

Modifications of court orders and enforcement actions can be hotly contested, but Attorney Mediator Beth Reineke has helped clients resolve even complex and high-conflict cases. Through mediation and other dispute resolution methods, she helps people avoid the stress and expense of litigation and have more control over the outcome. She believes that all family disputes, however tense or tangled, are readily solvable through mediation. She also can help you with Alimony Modifications and Custody Modifications.

Tampa Attorney Mediator for Modifying Parenting Plans

A minor temporary change in the parenting schedule does not require a formal modification. For an ongoing, substantial change in physical custody, time sharing, child support or spousal support, it is a good idea to memorialize it in writing to avoid a big legal conflict later.

  • If you agree on all issues, Beth Reineke can draft the modification agreement to submit to the court for approval. Modifying custody out of court with a lawyer’s help is faster, easier and more cost-effective than filing a petition and undergoing discovery and a contested hearing.
  • Attorney Reineke also offers mediation services if you cannot agree on terms but wish to avoid litigation. She can serve as a neutral facilitator to explore what’s working, what’s not working and various options to resolve all the disputes. She helps anticipate future scenarios you may not have considered, and she ensures that the new agreement is detailed and clear.

Enforcement issues? Even contempt of court cases can be resolved through a mediator or parent coordinator. If a parent is delinquent with child support, not truly sharing the parenting roles, or persistently interfering with visitation, having that person hauled before a judge and held in contempt might get their attention, or it may only make them more belligerent.

Mediation may be more productive. It provides a better forum for addressing the underlying problems and disputes, without raising the stakes or the level of animosity. We truly believe that going to court should always be the last resort.
