Table of Acceptable Grounds for Modification

Grounds for Modification Description
Custody Disputes One of the parents may eventually need to petition for changes to custody terms due to events beyond their control. Modifications are usually done when the child wants to change residency, parents are facing an issue like addiction or untreated mental illness, a parent or child is relocating, or when domestic violence has become an issue.
Relocation Relocation modification requests occur when one parent wants to move outside the metro area. Parents must meet relocation factors that consider the effect on the child’s meaningful relationship with the non-relocating parent. They must prove the economic, educational, and emotional benefit of the move on the child. They would need the other parent’s approval or the court’s permission to do so. If one parent tries to move with the child or just takes the child, then the other parent can petition the court to immediately intervene. These cases most often result in a trial.
Changes in Financial Circumstances If there has been a significant change in one parent’s financial circumstances, such as a loss of employment or a significant increase in income, this may be grounds for a modification to child support payments.
Changes in Health or Disability Status If there has been a significant change in one parent’s health or disability status, this may be grounds for a modification to child support payments or custody arrangements.
