Can Child Custody Be Modified?

The answer is yes. However, modifying child custody is not automatic nor is it an easy process. Before a child support order can be modified, it must be approved by the court. It is important for individuals seeking to modify child custody to speak to a family law attorney about their specific circumstances.

Some common reasons why people seek a child custody modification include:

  • Relocation for a job or other purpose
  • Change in the ability of a parent to provide adequate care, whether due to substance abuse, illness or another reason
  • Change in the child’s needs, whether educational, physical, or otherwise

Texas family courts will not approve child custody just because a parent doesn’t like the current arrangement. It is necessary to show that a significant change in circumstances has occurred that makes it necessary to modify the child custody/visitation agreement. Also, the court will consider the best interests of the child involved. Will the modification have a positive impact on the life of the child involved?
