Child custody is often an emotionally taxing decision that families face in the process of divorce. Child custody is always focused on the best interests of the children. Typically, once custody is decided, the parties will try to arrive at a Parenting Plan or the Court will enter a custody order stating which parent has custody of the children. A change in custody is possible after an order has been entered, and this is known as a custody modification. Custody is never considered permanent in New Jersey as children, parents and the parties needs may change as time passes.
If a non-custodial parent may file for a change in custody, and he or she must demonstrate changed circumstances, which is not always easy. The change in circumstances must affect the “best interests of the child.” This standard applies whether the custody arrangement was ordered by a court or agreed to by the parties out of court. As a general rule, without a substantial change in circumstances, custody modifications require a hearing by the Court.
