Modifying Child Custody Agreements

When a divorce takes place, one of the most difficult aspects of the proceedings is determining which spouse is awarded child custody. After this is decided, it is expected that the parent given physical custody can give the child the best possible living environment. As time goes on, circumstances may change and subsequently necessitate a modification of the child custody agreement. This process can, however, often become long and difficult; this is why it is often wise to contact a family attorney to help with these matters.

Reasons for Modifying Child Custody

Proving that modification to child custody agreements is in the child’s best interest can be almost impossible without proper evidence. Some reasons for modifying child custody include:

  • A parent can no longer provide a safe environment for the child.
  • A parent becomes ill or cannot take care of the child properly due to health issues
  • Relocation of one or both parents
  • Remarriage of one or both parents
  • The child specifically requests a change in living arrangements

If any of these reasons are met, modifying custody may be a viable option to ensure your child’s best care. However, even with significant evidence, modifying custody can be nearly impossible without the assistance of an experienced attorney.
