3 reasons to consider requesting a child custody modification

As the holidays approach and you take a look at your child custody arrangement, you may find that it is no longer working well for you. If your current custody or vacation details leave you dissatisfied, you may be wondering if there is a way to make changes.

According to Nevada laws, you can request a child custody modification when it is in the best interest of your child or there is a substantial change in circumstances. Here are some reasons you may want to pursue changing your custody arrangement. 

1. Your child is in danger

If you have concerns about your child facing immediate danger in his or her current household, the court will likely take your request for a modification seriously. If this happens, the court will assess the danger your child is facing by determining whether there is domestic violence or another form of immediate danger. 

2. Your ex is ignoring the schedule

If you have a visitation schedule and the other parent is not cooperating with it, you may consider requesting a change in custody. Before you file a request for a modification, you should try your best to communicate with your ex and come up with a solution on your own. If the problem persists and you file a modification request, the court will look at why your ex is not following the plan. 

3. Someone is relocating

If you or your ex are planning on moving away, you may want to think about changing your custody agreement. The court will seriously consider a modification if the move will make the visitation impractical. The court will also determine the motivation of the moving parent and whether altering the custody arrangement will interrupt the life of the child.

While these three situations may possibly warrant a child custody modification, you should try to work out an agreement with the other parent first.
