What Factors Warrant Child Custody Modification?
To modify an existing child custody arrangement, the parent seeking modification must establish that there has been a significant change in circumstances, and that this change warrants modification. For example, if one parent needs to move out of Georgia for work reasons, it is unlikely that the existing parenting plan will remain viable.
In determining whether to allow the modification of child custody, the court will consider a wide range of factors, including the child’s best interests and the reasons for the requested change. We can help you understand these considerations, and understand the likely outcome of any attempted child custody modification.
A change to the custody arrangement may also warrant child support modification. We’ll make sure that you understand the full implications of any attempted modification.
Whether you are seeking modification or opposing modification, it is important to ensure that your interests are protected. The advice and advocacy of a skilled family law attorney may prove invaluable. To schedule a consultation and learn more, contact our offices through email or call 404.816.7776 today.
