When a child’s physical, mental, or emotional health is at issue, a change in custody arrangement may provide for a better family environment for the child. Child custody arrangement may be modified in cases where a material change of circumstances has occurred in the custodial home, the change adversely affects the child, and the modification is in the best interest of the child.

Courts will consider multiple factors when making these determinations.

If you are seeking a custody modification, it is imperative that you retain an experienced family law attorney who will aggressively protect your right to custody of your child. 




The determination of the paternity of a minor child has legal requirements and implications. These issues may arise when the mother is unmarried or when she is married, but the husband is not the father. Establishing paternity assists with issues involving financial support and other benefits given to children such as child support, health insurance, inheritance and even Social Security and Veteran’s benefits, if eligible. Failing to establish paternity could cause a father to lose all rights to custody or visitation with his child.

Steven Eckert offers personal attention to each client and will devote all of his resources to aggressively preserving your rights. Don’t face these decisions on your own.
