What Is Needed for Modification Approval?
Since court approval is necessary for all modifications, having a strong legal team is always recommended to improve your chances of success. Approval is based on the best interests of the child, which can be affected by circumstances regarding his or her living situation.
To seek a change of custody or visitation order, you must show:
- A change of circumstances since the original agreement
- Instability of the child’s custody arrangement without a change
- The change would be in the child’s best interests
In addition, drug abuse, physical/emotional abuse, or insufficient fulfillment of court-ordered time between the child and a parent can all qualify as reasons for a modification to be made. To begin this process, certain court forms need to be filed. With the assistance of a child custody attorney, you are likely to have a stronger argument for modification and can increase your chances of success.
