When Can Child Custody Orders Be Modified?

After a divorce is finalized or initial custody arrangements have been finalized, modifications can be made if there has been a substantial change in circumstances. The Pennsylvania courts will modify custody in accordance with what is in the best interest of the child or children involved. Reasons for modification may include:

  • Changes in work schedules of either parent
  • Children starting school
  • Misbehavior of either parent such as criminal charges or an inappropriate significant other

At Palange, Endres & Marks, P.C., we represent clients with a wide range of custody matters, including modifications to orders. We understand that this can be an emotional issue for families and will work diligently to try and reach an agreement. If one cannot be reached, we will advocate for you and your children's best interests in court.
