It appears that you have made a reasonable request due to a change in your schedule. Particularly since your change in schedule is related to accomplishing educational and career goals, you may want to consider voicing your concerns to the court. If you are paying child support, you cannot legally be prevented from seeing your children and I would argue that if you are trying to honor your visitation order, but a change in circumstances requires a modification of the visitation times, you cannot be prevented from seeing your children. Visitation orders may be modified at any time. The courts give a great deal of weight to what is in the best interests of the children. It would not be in the best interest of the children to completely deny them the opportunity to spend time with their parent merely due to a change in the parent's schedule.
