Modifying your child custody order can be a difficult process and will require the help of an experienced family law attorney. Child custody orders can only be modified if the court finds that there has been a change in circumstances since the initial order.
Not all life changes are important enough to warrant the modification of a child custody order. Life changes that the court will consider sufficient for modification could include:
- Scheduling conflicts with work or school
- The child is older, making different needs important
- You have another child or a new family
- Your child’s health and safety is threatened because of abuse or neglect by the other parent
When determining whether or not to grant your request, the judge will focus on what is in the best interest of your child.
Even if your circumstances have changed to warrant the modification of the order, the judge will not let you modify the order if it is not in the best interest of your child.
To show the judge that modifying your order is in the best interest of your child, you will need an experienced family law attorney fighting for you.
