Changing custody in Tennessee means changing the primary parent`s name to the permanent parent plan after the divorce. When the primary case of the parents of children is amended, the court must carry out a multi-part analysis. First, the court must consider whether the circumstances have “significantly changed” and whether the change affects the child`s well-being. If the first question is yes, the court must decide whether the child`s best interests should be served by changing the parent who serves as the primary parent. This is what the court used this first list of ten factors, but looking at established routines and experience as primary foster parents.

Changing or modifying your education plan or any other changes to child custody in Tennessee after divorce will require a change in jurisdiction. In order to change custody, the parent applying for the change must demonstrate a change in circumstances that significantly alters the child`s well-being. It is rarely a simple question of law. In the case of Combs, the father made a substantial change in the circumstances by demonstrating, after providing evidence, that a change in registration had occurred after the introduction of the divorce decision and a subsequent amendment, that the amendment was not known or reasonably expected, and that the amendment had had a negative impact on the welfare of the children. The father provided evidence of the mother`s continued interference in all aspects of the father`s relationship with the children, especially his visit and communication. If a parent has a first that shows that the circumstances have changed significantly, the court will review the legal factors to assess whether a change of custody is in the best interests of the child, including, but not only: a change in residence in a permanent parental plan requires a court order. To change the parent plan defined in a permanent parent plan, a parent must prove that “a significant change in circumstances” requires change. The law states that the parent is not obligated to prove that the change in circumstances entails “a significant risk of harm to the child.” Some examples of changes in circumstances that would justify a change in the parental plan are that it may be difficult to determine whether there has been a “significant change in circumstances,” even because of the relatively small burden of proof, known as “major evidence.” Two examples of requested custody changes, which have not been successful, illustrate this point.
