Modification in Child Custody in California

In California, modification of child custody orders after a final judgment, requires the moving party to show a “substantial change of circumstances”. There should be a significant change in the life of the child or the parents since the final judgment regarding custody.

Some of these changes could include but is not limited to the following:

1. The non-custodial parent now has a higher timeshare than the primary custodial parent or the fact that the minor has become older in age to increase the timeshare.

2. The primary residence of the minor child is unsafe physically, mentally, or emotionally and it would be safer and in the child’s best interest to move the child to the other parent.

3. A parent has suffered a criminal conviction and cannot abide by the current custodial orders warranting a change in the custody orders.
