While requesting a change of custody is still very difficult, it is important to document all issues regarding custody or parenting time as they occur. We highly recommend using e-mail exchanges to provide proof to the court. If you feel that you have some facts that may justify a change of custody, it is advisable to contact an attorney.
Recently, the Court of Appeals found that parents' inability to get along and agree with respect to their children was sufficient grounds to review a custody order. Constant disagreements between parents that negatively impact children are generally not taken lightly by the court. As we have previously posted, it is often onerous for a parent to request a modification of custody once it has been established by a court order.
