Some Georgia parents who are subject to an existing child custody order may want to ask for a modification. This may be done in the event that they think that the child may be in danger. If a child is in immediate danger, a judge may order a modification right away. A modification may also be made if children say that they don't want to live with the custodial parent.
If a parent chooses to relocate, this may be grounds for modifying an existing order. Whether or not a modification is granted depends on the reason why a parent is relocating and whether or not doing so makes it impossible to stick to the original custody schedule. When a parent ignores the custody schedule, it may be possible to ask that it be changed to reflect the lack of interest.
