Can a custody order be modified later?

Yes, but only if there has been a substantial change of circumstances affecting the child since the prior order was entered. Courts desire stability for the child. Generally, the stability of a custody order promotes the stability of the child. While custody orders can be modified, the parent seeking to modify it must carry a significant burden of proof to satisfy the requirements authorizing a judge to modify the prior custody order.
