Process to modify child custody orders can be challenging

When circumstances change for Utah parents after a divorce, the best-laid plans can become impractical. Child custody and parenting plans may need modification if one or both parents have remarried or relocated to different areas, and when a child needs to go to a different school. Specific procedures must be followed to have the court modify a child custody order.

It is often reported that the growing trend in family courts around the country is to now favor awarding shared or joined child custody -- unless there is a need to protect a child from neglect or abuse by a parent. However, that idea was dispelled by a professor of adolescent and educational psychology at a university in another state.

Custody laws in Utah are in place to facilitate the needs of both parents and children. Unfortunately, when parents have disagreements in a custody battle, the children suffer the most. However, both parents must understand that the physical and emotional well-being of the child should remain top priorities. A child custody battle involving the daughter of a famous, high-profile couple made headlines recently, as the couple is close to reaching an agreement about the custody of their daughter.
