Standard for Obtaining Custody and Visitation Modifications

A higher standard is required to obtain a child custody modification as opposed to a visitation modification. The general rule is that you must wait at least two years to seek a custody modification. However, you are not required to wait to seek a custody modification if your child is in danger.

To obtain a visitation (parenting time) modification, you must show that the proposed modification is in the best interests of your child. A variety of factors may warrant a modification of an existing parenting time schedule, including parental relocation, work schedule changes, a child's need to spend more time with a non-custodial parent and other factors impacting the best interests of a child.
