Brief descriptions of content are provided to help you decide which packet you may wish to use. The descriptions are not intended to provide you with complete information about the law or court procedures involved in each packet. For more information, please consult with an attorney.
Use only ONE of the packets listed below.
Use this packet to request a CHANGE of custody, parenting time and/or child support, and where there is NOT agreement between the parents on the change. The forms in this packet may be used by parents with Judgments of Dissolution, Judgments of Separation, and unmarried parents who have obtained a Judgment regarding custody, parenting time and/or child support. If the parents agree on the change, use the forms in the "Stipulation to Modify" packet instead.
If the other parent asks the court to change the custody, parenting time and/or child support provisions in a judgment, and you do not agree with ALL the requested changes, you must "respond" in WRITING by the deadline specified in the "Order to Show Cause" served upon you, typically 30 days. A response allows you to object to the changes and state facts telling the court the reasons you disagree. Some courts may also require a personal appearance in court on a scheduled hearing date which will be listed on the "Order to Show Cause" that is served on you.
If both parents agree to specific changes in parenting time only and want their judgment to be changed, they may use this form. Parents should fill out this form, have their signatures notarized, and submit it to the court. By statute, the court may either sign the order or may require parties to appear for a hearing. If the child is in another state, there are some circumstances in which this stipulation cannot be used.
