CHILD CUSTODY FAQ #11
11. Can a custody and visitation order be changed?
After a judge makes a custody/visitation order, one or both parents may want to change the order.
Usually, the judge will approve a new custody and visitation order that both parents agree to. If the
parents can't agree on a change, one parent can ask the court for a change. Usually, that parent will
have to ask for a court hearing and prove to the judge that there is a change in circumstances, harm
to the children or other good reason to change the order. Both parents will probably have to meet
with a mediator to talk about why you want to change the order.
Contested custody or visitation cases are complicated. Talk with a lawyer to understand how law
affects you and your rights.
