How do I get a temporary custody order or modification of custody decree?

Law Offices of John Schmidt & Associates, PLLC recommends you consult with an attorney who deals with temporary custody orders and modification of custody decrees because it is easy to make a mistake.

If you seek a temporary custody order or modification of a custody decree, then you must submit an affidavit setting forth facts supporting the requested order or modification together with the moving papers.

In order to properly ask the court for a temporary custody order or modification of a custody decree, you must give notice to other parties to the proceeding together with a copy of your affidavit. The opposing parties may file opposing affidavits.

The court shall deny the motion for a temporary custody order or modification of a custody decree unless it finds adequate cause for hearing the motion is established by the affidavits.

If the court finds there is adequate cause for a hearing for a temporary custody order or modification of a custody decree, then the court shall set a date for hearing on an order to show cause why the requested order or modification should not be granted.

See KRS 403.350 for more information.
