Requirements for Parent Plan Modifications
The modification of a parenting plan and timesharing schedule requires a party to demonstrate a substantial, material, and unanticipated change of circumstances.
There are two elements to the statement – the circumstances have significantly and materially changed since the determination of custody and the child’s best interests justify the change.
What Is Considered the Best Interest of the Child for a Modification Case?
In Tennessee, factors of the best interests of the child include, but not limited to, the following:
- The love, affection, and emotional connection between the parents and the child
- The disposition of the parents to provide food, clothing, medical care, education, and other required care to the child and the degree to which a parent have been the primary caregiver
- The continuity in the child’s life and the length of time the child has resided in a satisfactory, stable environment
- The mental and physical health of the parents
- The stability of the family unit of the parents
- The past and potential for future performance of the parenting responsibilities of each party
- The home, academic, and community record of the child
