Modification of Child Custody
The original agreement or court judgment that set forth child custody and visitation arrangements can be modified. In the event of a substantial change in circumstances, you may be able to seek a child custody modification. Your attorney will need to prove that this is in the best interests of your child or children and that the situation that led to your requesting a modification is serious enough to warrant a change.
Some examples of what might qualify as a substantial change in circumstances include:
- The custodial parent deciding to move away, particularly out of state
- A substantial change in the lifestyle of one of the parents, such as a new work schedule
- Suspected domestic violence, sexual abuse, or neglect
