Minnesota residents know that child custody can be one of the primary issues during any divorce case because where a child's residence is very important to everyone involved. Minnesota courts will always make their custody decision based on the best interests of the child. But sometimes life situations can change and a custodial parent may need to turn custody over to the non-custodial parent. So here a few reasons when a Minnesota court will consider approving a child custody change.
It is very hard to change child custody arrangements once they have been approved by a court. However, a court will consider this if the custodial parent's life situation has changed significantly. This kind of condition could include a significant change in the custodial parent's financial situation which may have deteriorated to the point that they can no longer properly provide for their child. The other situation that a court will consider is if the child's emotional and physical well being is in danger because of the current custody arrangement.
