Modification and Enforcement of CustodyModification may be necessary if there is a change in circumstances such as an illness, relocation, job loss or other factors that may impact the current custody or support arrangement. Child custody/modification may include an adjustment to parental rights and duties, or parenting time schedule. The change in circumstances may make the existing order impractical or impossible. A change in circumstances may include relocation, change in job or the child’s schedule. Changes to an existing custody or support arrangement often arise when one or more of the following factors exist:
A child’s desire to reside with a different parent depending upon the child’s age
Abuse or neglect
Changes in income because of job loss, illness or serious injury
