How to Change Child Custody When the Other Parent Won’t Agree

If you need to know how to change child custody when the other parent won't agree, you've come to the right place. It's much easier to modify a child custody agreement when both parents agree, but it's possible to modify the order even if the other parent disagrees. In order to change custody, a parent must show that the change is in the best interest of the child. Even if the parent can show that, they also must provide a reason for the change. The reason shown usually must be some significant change in the child's situation (i.e. a move, loss of a job, new people in the child's life). A change in custody will require filing a motion and a hearing in court which both parties must be aware of.
