Custody Rule #1- What are the Best Interests of the Child?

Either parent can ask the family law court to establish or modify a child custody agreement between you and the other parent. Custody will always be awarded according to the best interest of the child. ​But what does that mean? Although the family court is given broad discretion in making a custody determination, there are certain factors the judge must consider. For a complete listing and brief explanation of the child custody factors, call Taylor Fontenot for a free initial consultation now.

Seeking a Child Custody Modification?

Custody can always be modified if it is in the child’s best interest. In order to modify a custody order agreed to by the parents, the parent asking for a modification must show a material change in circumstances and that the proposed custody is in the best interest of the child. Contact Southern Oaks today and speak with an attorney with experience modifying custody orders.
