Advocating For Necessary Child Custody Modifications

Following your final divorce decree, which specifies matters such as division of property, spousal support, child support and child custody, agreements may be eligible for modification. Although the court usually prefers limiting changes with regards to custody agreements to avoid disturbing the child's routine, it is possible to petition the court when significant changes occur.

If you are interested in pursuing an order modification, call our Palm Desert office at 760-340-4545 for experienced child custody counsel.

Factors That Can Impact A Custody Modification

A child's best interests always prevail when establishing the initial custody agreement and making subsequent modifications. Several legitimate reasons can, however, sway the original entente, including:

  • Relocation of a parent
  • Changes to work schedules
  • Parent has a substance abuse problem
  • Parent is unfit to care for child
  • Parent committed child abuse or neglect
  • Child demonstrates behavioral problems
  • Injury or illness of a parent or the child
  • Child's needs change (educational aspirations)

If the current child custody agreement is unrealistic or unmanageable, it is important to seek legal representation for assistance.
