Any court order pertaining to children is always subject to modification by the court if:
- there has been a material change in circumstances since the entry of the prior court order; and
- the court determines that a modification is in the best interest of the child
The law requires that a change in circumstance that impacts the best interest of the child regarding a custody and/or visitation order must be demonstrated by the moving party to consider a modification of the order.
Every modification case is different and depends on the family’s specific circumstances and the court’s original order or the parties’ original agreement.
Once the court determines that a material change in circumstance has occurred, the court will re-evaluate the current facts and make a new determination as to what is now in the best interest of the child.
