Default Work from home is material change in child custody?

My current company changes policy and offer everyone wfh policy. Is it a material change ? Ex has regular office job and kids are usually picked up by her parents. Current order is every other weekend and Wednesday, I wish I could have two days in weekday. Any idea?

Actually working from home may be a material change. The new policy itself is not.

You may have to show the court how you are available to care for the children despite having work obligations. This will be a function of age as well as the nature of your job.

I would think not. It doesnt matter where you are working, it mattered that you are working. Working from home is still working. You are either going to actually work, and your kids are going to be taking care of themselves in front of the tv/video game or your not going to be working, instead taking care of them.

But who will watch the kids while you work an additional 1-2 hours? Be prepared to answer all these questions

you might be able to pull it off if you have good documented record of taking care of the children, and a judge who is not a feminist.

Nice, I hope the judge can take it as well and I will go for 50/50 eventually.

Why not go with it right away? If you dont get it now youll have to show a material change to fight it in the future
