Modifying Your Custody Agreement

Our Family Law Attorneys Serve on Behalf of Children

How Do Child Custody Modifications Work?

Child custody modifications are a category of post-decree modifications. Motions to modify custody must be intended to benefit the child primarily, but they need to be justified by demonstrating circumstances changing. Motions to modify custody can include a plea to establish, widen, refute, or limit parental custody. The Harris Law Firm, as one of Colorado’s largest family law firms, we have 250 years of combined experience handling all matters pertaining to child custody, including modifications after an initial agreement is signed.

In a motion to modify child custody, the court’s chief and primary concern is the child’s welfare. To that end, they may assign a Guardian Ad Litem to the child to act as their legal voice. The Guardian Ad Litem may interview the child (or children), as well as the parents and any other relevant parties.

The court will rule in favor based on criteria pertaining to the child’s interests, including:

  • Nutritional needs
  • Physical/educational needs, including shelter
  • Emotional well-being, including the local community
