You would need to file a Supplemental Petition to modify the original order that gave the father custody of the child.

If you both agree it should be reduced to writing then signed then submitted to the court for approval. Contact my office for free consultation. 727-446-7659.

You should reduce any Agreement to writing signed by both parents (and under oath). Speak with the domestic relations department of the Clerk of the Circuit where the case was previously held. Many Judges will simply allow for a stipulated Agreement modifying the last Visitation Order/Judgment without the need for filing a Petition.

Note that Child Support may be affected.
