Custody is widely recognized as one of the most difficult aspects of divorce and one that has a tremendous impact on how property settlements and issues of support will be resolved as well. What is more important to recognize is this:
A child custody battle can cause tremendous harm to children and should be avoided if at all possible.
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania recognizes this truth and requires parents to go through mediation before any custody case can proceed to trial.

Can agreements be modified after the divorce?
Generally speaking, child custody and visitation agreements can be modified after divorce. In fact, they frequently are, usually because of a major change in the employment situation of one of the parents or because of a geographic move.
Modifications to these agreements happen in one of two ways. The first is simply to approach your former spouse and talk to him or her about what has changed and why you need to change your child custody and visitation agreements. In our experience, this type of reasonable approach is often met with a reasonable response which, in turn, allows new agreements to be made without resorting to the second of your two options — the judge.
