What Qualifies as Material and Substantial Change?
Some examples of a “material and substantial” change of circumstances include changes to the home environment such as:
- When the child undergoes frequent moves;
- Remarriage of a parent;
- The violation of a geographic restriction by a parent;
- Interference with visitation by a parent;
- When the child’s age and needs change;
- Parental conflict; and
- Relocation of a parent.
