Common Precursors to Child Custody Modifications

Activities and imagery that may move to court to make changes to the custody arrangement can include the use of illegal drugs and other controlled substances in the home or by the parent, a sexual charged environment or if the parent is some form of sex-worker, and any forms of violence, abuse, or other criminal activities taking place in or outside of the residence.

Cleanliness can also be a factor in the court making a determination on whether or not to make adjustments to the custodial rights regarding the juvenile. When activities like these are proven in the court of law, it can often guarantee our client will regain custody of their child or children.
