What does a parent need to show to be able to modify child custody in New York? Let's ask New York city lawyer Carla Barone for this AskTheLawyers Quick Question.
Child custody modifications becomes the moving parent who seeks to modify has to show a substantial change in circumstances that affects the well-being of the children, and so therefore, there has to be that showing of a substantial change before there can be modification. That is a threshold issue on the moving parent that the court is gonna make a determination on before getting to the substantive issues.
