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.

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
  • The evidence of physical or emotional abuse toward the child
