There's not a set time that you have to wait to apply for a modification of the parenting plan.

Rather, there needs to be a substantial change in circumstances.

This could be a change in your circumstances, or a change in circumstances affecting your child, that were not present or anticipated at the time the prior parenting order was put in.

So if that's occurred, you don't need to wait, you can file for a modification now.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
