Can you modify your child custody arrangement?

Divorces involving children can be extremely difficult, especially when it comes to creating a parenting plan that meets the best interests of the child. It can be overwhelming to schedule parenting time that benefits your child, as well as everyone else that is involved. Once your parenting plan is customized in the final divorce settlement, you may feel as though it is set in stone. Yet, certain life circumstances may constitute a change in your child custody arrangement. Parenting plans may change several times throughout a child’s life. As a child grows, their needs and interests change, and parenting plans must also change to adapt to this new schedule.

In fact, there are several situations in which a child custody modification order may be necessary. For example, if your parenting plan is created when your children were toddlers, the schedule will change when your children start school. Furthermore, if either parent loses a job, moves away, becomes incarcerated, remarries, loses a home or experiences another dramatic life change, the order may need to be adjusted as well.

In a case where both parents can agree upon the proposed change, a child custody arrangement form may be signed and submitted to the court. The judge will review the request and approve, deny or modify the change. When one parent does not agree with the proposed change, a child custody modification must be submitted. The judge will then look at the modification and determine what action is in the best interest of the child.
