When Can You File For A Modification Of Child Custody And Visitation Orders?

In California, you can seek a modification of child custody and visitation orders at any time. The court may find a child custody and/or visitation order "necessary or proper" if it is in the child's best interests. The parent who pursues modification must show the court a "significant change of circumstances" to support the order change request.

Common reasons for seeking a change in visitation include:

  • A change to one or both parents' work schedules
  • The non-custodial parent moved closer to the other parent
  • A child has a new schedule due to academic commitments or extracurricular activities
  • A child desired to live with or spend more time with the non-custodial parent
  • A parent seeks relocation outside the geographic area where the child resides
