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.
