Judge modifying custody orderThere’s a good chance your life has changed in some capacity since finalizing your child custody agreement. Whether you have moved to a new city or taken on a new job, the changes in your life may require adjustments to your child custody arrangements.

Modifications can be made to a custody order – and it is in your best interest to seek guidance from a reliable attorney when attempting to do so. At Pacific Cascade Family Law, our Vancouver child custody modification lawyers are here to help you seek changes that better reflect your current situation. We can also represent you if the other parent of your child is seeking custody modifications you do not agree with.

Contact us online or call 360-506-6332 to get started on your case today.

How to Obtain a Custody Modification

Life is full of changes, so it is common for families to seek modifications to custody arrangements. Keep in mind that the court will not automatically grant the modifications you request – it will have to review and approve them first. Should you decide to change your custody arrangements outside of court, you should know that any such arrangement is not enforceable by the court.

The court will only grant a modification to a child custody determination if there has been a significant change in the custodial parent’s ability to provide for the child.

Examples of a significant change include:

  • Relocation
  • Job loss
  • Change in child’s wishes (for example, he or she wants to spend more time with the non-custodial parent)
  • Change in work schedule
  • Abuse or neglect by one parent

Our team at Pacific Cascade Family Law can help build a strong case on your behalf, explaining why the change is necessary and how it is in the best interests of the child. Should you wish to block the other parent’s request for modification, we can help defend your reasoning as to why the change would not be in the child’s best interests.
