Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Once a judge makes a decision on child custody
, they can reconsider the custody based on a motion to modify if you can prove a significant change in circumstances. However, if all of these issues you are raising were existing at the time he awarded custody, then your recourse was you had to appeal the decision to the appeals court within 30 days of the judgment.
I am afraid that unless you can now prove some recent change in circumstances regarding the father's abilities to properly care for the child, the court will not change the determination and if you did not appeal the decision 2 years ago when the court stated it was not detrimental to the child, I am afraid it is too late to change that ruling.
If you can get new psychological evaluations of the child to prove the child is somehow being damaged by visitations
with the father, then that would be a new basis for filing for a motion to change/modify the custody and parenting plan
. Without such new evidence the court will deny making any changes.
