Modification of Child Custody

The state of Arizona determines each child custody case according to whatever is in the best interests of the child. Child custody arrangements are rarely ever changed, but in some cases a custody order must be modified to keep a child safe, happy, and healthy. If you would like to discuss a potential modification of your child custody order, contact the law office of the Tucson family lawyer today.

A judge will not change a custody order for any reason not firmly supported by irrefutable evidence. If a child’s living situation has become abusive or dangerous, a change in custody will be granted. Sometimes older child would like a change in where they live. They will be given the opportunity to tell the judge why they would like a change in their living situation, and depending on the circumstances a modification may be granted.

Non-parental custody can be challenged in court by the parents of the child to prove that they are fit to have custody over the child again. If a parent has been released from prison or a hospital for instance, the Tucson family lawyer can help them take their pleas to the court. However again, custody orders are always ruled according to what is in the best interests of the child.
