Modification of Child Custody

When agreements regarding child custody are made during a divorce, both spouses are expected to adhere to them. Still, lives change every day and eventually your current child custody arrangement might become unworkable. If this has happened to you, contact a Raleigh family lawyer immediately to discuss filing for a modification of child custody.

What is a Modification of Child Custody?

When a major change in your life makes fulfilling your current child custody or visitation rights court order impossible, you can file for a “modification of child custody.” Some factors that might warrant such a modification may include the loss of a job or the need to relocate out of state.

In another scenario, you may realize that your child spending time with your ex-spouse may be doing more harm than good. Your ex-spouse may have problems with drugs or alcohol, or may be showing signs of domestic violence. If this is the case, you can attempt to gain sole custody of your children. A good Raleigh family lawyer can help you build a case to prove that this modification is within the best interests of your children.
