Child Custody Modifications

Indiana Legal Assistance from Cairns Law

Child custody modifications can be complicated and messy. At Cairns Law , we strive to provide legal guidance that will help you avoid the complications and mess. Child custody modifications occur when there has been a substantial and continuing change of circumstances that justifies modifying the current child custody order.

There are several factors that may be considered for a modification, including:

  • The child’s grades
  • The child’s behavior
  • The mental health of all involved (parents and children)
  • Drug abuse by one parent
  • Legal issues

The important thing to remember in a child custody modification is that it is not an opportunity to relitigate a prior hearing. In other words, in order to obtain a modification, you will need to show that something substantial has occurred that effects the child directly and that occurred after the last hearing or order.
