Child custody modification -- Jon Gosselin seeks new court order

When New York parents get divorced, the well-being of the children is typically a considerable concern for everyone involved. Child custody decisions are often made based on what living conditions would be best for the children. However, even after such decisions have been made, children may express discomfort over the arrangements. If there is a valid concern, a parent may wish to consider seeking a custody modification. 

Infamous reality star Jon Gosselin is currently seeking custody of one of his eight children. It was reported that, during a visit with Gosselin, one of his sextuplets stated that she did not wish to return home to her mother -- who has custody of all eight children -- due to harsh treatment. The father was concerned over his child's safety and took "emergency custody" of her. 

Due to Gosselin taking custody without a court order, the child was soon returned to the custody of her mother. It was reported that Gosselin plans to petition the court for a child custody modification in order to gain custody of the child. He also reportedly hopes to take steps to end the filming of the reality television show featuring his ex-wife and children.

Though this situation may seem out of the ordinary due to some of the circumstances, many New York parents may be able to relate to similar child custody issues. If a parent becomes concerned over the safety of his or her children, seeking a modification to custody agreements may be a step to consider. Information regarding circumstances under which modifications may be warranted could prove beneficial for concerned parents.
