How can I change my parenting plan?

In order to change your parenting plan you must first show that a substantial change in circumstances which would require a change to your plan. In other words, what makes you want to change your parenting plan?

If you can show that there is a substantial change in circumstance, you will need to file a lawsuit and have the other parent served. If you and the other parent can agree on a proposed change, then the lawsuit will be nominal. If there is some disagreement, then parties will litigate the case as if it were a divorce or paternity, except the only issues would be whether the parenting plan should be changed and how should it be changed.
