Understanding Modifications of Child Custody
Child custody is a court-supported legal agreement between two parents who divorced. It can refer to legal custody, which is the right to decide on the life of the child (such as religion, education, medical, etc.), or physical custody, which is the right to live in the same place with the child.
The first and foremost priority of any child custody agreement is the welfare of the child. The parent who wants to get most of the custody must prove that they can provide the best financial, emotional, physical, and social care to the kid. In Pennsylvania, there are 16 factors that courts consider to be important to a child that’s gaining custody. Some of them include the availability of extended family, relationships with siblings (if any), the preferences of the child (depending on maturity and judgment), and the cooperation or the lack of which between the parents.
There are times when the agreed custody rights don’t work anymore for the child or either of the parents. In such cases, a modification must be done. Child custody modifications can be informal. The parents can just talk it out peacefully anytime they want. If there is no problem with their desired modifications, they no longer need to get a court’s approval. But if the other party doesn’t agree to the proposed changes, the parent who wants to amend the custody agreement must file a petition to the court to make the modifications they want. In such a case, it is proper to get the best legal aid company you can out there. Voelker Kairys & Morris will provide you with everything you will need to achieve the modifications you want for the best of your child’s interests.
Reasons Why People Apply for Child Custody Modifications
Best interests of the child
Of course, when the welfare of the kid is threatened, changes must be made as soon as possible. Perhaps one of the parents notices that the child has too much stress from the environment of the parent who has more physical custody. This case must appeal to the best interests of the child to get the appropriate modifications.
Danger to the child
Danger to the child can mean present and provable danger or just the possibility of such cases. The child does not need to have an obvious mental or physical injury for a judge to rule that changes must be made to the custody. The parent can just appeal and prove to the judge that the people in the environment of the child pose a possible danger in the future.
Dangerous situations don’t always prompt modifications. Some parents find the need to change custody agreements because they need to relocate to a far enough area to affect the physical custody rights of the other parent significantly.
Tough employment situation
There’s nothing wrong with parents who miscalculated the financial responsibilities of raising a child alone. Some people ask for changes in custody rights, such as requiring more financial or parental support from the other parent, because their employment situation is too much for them to raise their child properly.
Custody modification cases that cause the most conflict are those that are triggered by an uncooperative parent. Such cases are very difficult to settle informally. Some even end up with a single parent needing to provide for all the needs of the child alone.
