Child custody modifications can be complicated and messy so the right representation matters. Child custody modifications can occur when there has been a substantial and continuing change of circumstances that justifies modifying the current child custody order.
There are several factors that may be considered for a modification, including:
- The child’s grades
- The child’s behavior
- The mental health of all involved (parents and children)
- Drug abuse by one parent
- Other legal issues
One important thing to remember in a child custody modification is that it is not an opportunity to relitigate a prior hearing. In other words, in order to obtain a modification, you will need to show that something substantial has occurred that affects the child directly and that it occurred after the last hearing or order. We are here to assist you with your child custody modification and provide you with practical legal advice that will help you determine what is your child’s best interest.
