A person may seek to decrease or increase the payment amount that is required under a spousal support or child support order. This person could be the payer or the recipient of the support.
While parental rights are taken into consideration when considering child custody, these decisions boil down to what is best for the child's wellbeing. For this reason, it will be crucial for you to show that the modification you are seeking is in your child's best interests.
When determining which custody arrangement is best for the child, the court will evaluate the circumstances and living situations of both parents, as well as the child's current needs. A guardian ad litem (or a legal advocate for the child) may even be assigned to the case to investigate these facts and report them back to the court.
