It goes without saying that when it comes to making changes in child custody, though not difficult to receive permission for from the court, it is easier to achieve when the agreement is mutually acceptable. One of the more common reasons for a child custody modification includes the physical relocation of the child that creates a significant burden on the non-custodial parent. Another common cause for child custody changes would be if one of the parents failed to follow custody rules or the child or parent’s lives changed significantly either positively or negatively requiring a change to the agreement to be made.
Of course, the direst of reasons for a child custody modification to be granted would be if the child’s life was in any danger. Those petitions usually move quickly through the court process especially if the police are involved and proof of abuse or neglect is easily achieved. If your child is in imminent danger from your spouse or someone in your spouse’s life, we always urge you to call the police immediately. After that, you can work with your attorney to file a motion to modify your custody agreement to protect the life of your child permanently.
