Modification of Child Custody
In every family law case whether it be a divorce or a paternity action, the children are the most important aspect of the case. Sometimes after the custody arrangements have been made it may be necessary to modify those arrangements. In modifying custody the court will always look to the best interest of the children and the change in circumstance that has brought about the reason for the modification.
When Is Child Custody Modification Necessary?
Should you feel your child is in danger, the victim of abuse, failing in school or has feelings of insecurity because of the actions of the custodial parent, a change in the timesharing arrangement may be necessary to protect the best interest of the child.
The process involves filing the required documents with the court which states the change in circumstance and why a change in custody is in the best interest of the child. The Law Office of James T.
