Reasons for a Child Custody Modification

You may feel that your child is not getting proper physical or emotional care under the current parenting plan arrangement. A child could be at risk while in the care of the other parent due to neglect, abuse or acts of physical or emotional violence. There may be issues related to drug or alcohol addiction, and the child is in a dangerous environment. In order to seek a modification we will need to substantiate the necessity for change with supporting evidence.

Any sign of emotional or physical abuse, or other situation that puts the child at risk must be fully supported when presented to the court. Any statements made by your child could be important evidence, and you should keep a record of these statements with the date and time. First, our state requires a substantial, material, and unanticipated change to grant child custody modifications. Secondly, it is necessary to establish that a change to an existing parenting plan will be in the in the best interests of the child. We will then file a petition and initiate your request to the court.
