Times You May Need A Modification
There are various reasons why parents may seek modifications to child custody agreements. Changes in employment or work schedules can impact a parent’s ability to adhere to the existing custody arrangement. A job transfer, promotion or change in working hours may require adjustments to address the children’s well-being and parental involvement adequately.
Additionally, if a parent’s mental health or substance abuse issues have arisen since the original custody order was established, modification may be necessary to safeguard the children’s safety and well-being. Changes in a parent’s living situation, such as remarriage or cohabitation, may also warrant modifications to accommodate the new family dynamic.
