My divorce was final July 3, 2018, after almost 6 years. However, due to several reasons we still do not have a formal custody order, only a temporary order from a hearing in December 2017. I have lived in Indiana for 5 years but travel to PA to see my daughter for a "long weekend" about every 6 weeks, plus I currently get 2 non-consecutive weeks with her during the summer. Her mother frequently interferes with my custody time, and I have filed for Contempt of Custody (conference scheduled for March 5, 2019). I have requested that it be postponed till later in March when I am there to visit my daughter. I am preparing to file for Custody Modification because my daughter and I both want more time together. The Masters Office says these will be combined into one conference. I have Asperger's and do not do well in adversarial settings. I need to make sure the language in my Petition and proposed agreement are on the mark and that a judge would agree should be ordered. I can eFile for myself but know I will need representation, I just don't have a lot of money for other fees. Looking for a "limited engagement".
The problem with a limited engagement is that once an attorney enters their appearance, they are in the case for everything until they withdraw their appearance. It does sound as if you need an attorney to represent you for modify the custody order. There are many attorneys on AVVO from which to chose and should be able to assist you within your budget.
