If you schedule a consultation with us, we can discuss in detail the exact behavior that you consider to be a bad influence. Many things such as drug abuse, alcohol abuse, allowing minor children to be around or in the presence of people who are using illegal drugs, or people who are drunk and abusive may be grounds to modify visitation and/or custody.
Talking bad about one parent, or allowing others to say bad things about one parent to the minor children, or within their hearing, is frowned upon by many judges. Our courts like to see parents that provide their minor children with a consistent, stable and structured environment. One that keeps them safe, well taken care of and not involved in any dispute the parents might be having, like matters in court.
