Modification Of Child Custody with a
Child Custody Agreements Are Not Set in Stone
Situations and circumstances change, and you may need to modify your child custody agreement. Sometimes a family court order is necessary. In either case, you must take immediate action. This requires either modification by a mediated agreement or a new family court order.
In order to modify a custody order, you must show a changed circumstance – and prove that modifying the current order will be in your child’s best interest, or you can work together to reach a mutually agreeable child custody modification court order.
Reasons to Modify a Child Custody Agreement
A change of circumstance in any of the following areas may be suitable grounds for modifying your child custody agreement:
- There have been significant changes in how much time the child in the case spends with each parent
- One parent has moved out of the area and the parenting plan needs modification
- The child’s needs have changed and there are more (or less) costs for child care, health care, and/or education.
If your circumstances have changed, please consider Mediation to modify your current custody order.
Mediation is most definitely worth your time.
