How to Obtain a Custody Modification
Life is full of changes, so it is common for families to seek modifications to custody arrangements. Keep in mind that the court will not automatically grant the modifications you request – it will have to review and approve them first. Should you decide to change your custody arrangements outside of court, you should know that any such arrangement is not enforceable by the court.
The court will only grant a modification to a child custody determination if there has been a significant change in the custodial parent’s ability to provide for the child.
Examples of a significant change include:
- Job loss
- Change in child’s wishes (for example, he or she wants to spend more time with the non-custodial parent)
- Change in work schedule
- Abuse or neglect by one parent
Our team at Pacific Cascade Family Law can help build a strong case on your behalf, explaining why the change is necessary and how it is in the best interests of the child. Should you wish to block the other parent’s request for modification, we can help defend your reasoning as to why the change would not be in the child’s best interests.
