In order to legitimately pursue modifications of child custody, people must have grounds to do so, with grounds for these modifications being any substantial change to their living arrangements or personal situation. Some examples include when at least one parent:

  • Moves to another location
  • Changes jobs or schedules
  • Takes on a new job or enrolls in school
  • Gets married.

There can be a number of other circumstances that necessitate modifications of child custody, and it’s best to consult an attorney to find more about your best options for moving forward when you may need to make changes to your current custody arrangement.

Fact 4 – Emergency protection orders can be used when the welfare of a child can’t wait for the courts to rule on modifications of child custody.

In some cases, pursuing modifications of child custody may not be immediate enough, as some children may be in environments or situations that put their health and wellbeing at risk. When this is the case, parents or other relatives can try to obtain emergency protection orders to immediately remove children from a dangerous environment until the court has time to formally review and make more final decisions in the case.

In the event that people need to get these orders, again, it’s best to consult with an experienced child custody attorney to get the process going, minimize any delays and get the child into a safe environment as soon as possible.

We will wrap up this discussion regarding modifying child custody agreements in the final part of this blog series that will be published soon –be sure you check it out!
