What is Permanent Custody in Kentucky?

Is a permanent custody order in Kentucky intended to last or remain unchanged indefinitely? The answer is no.

Custody can be changed after a permanent custody order is granted ...

  • after two years pass if it is in the child's best interest.
  • before two years pass only if sworn statements make clear that there is reason to believe that:
    • the child's present environment may endanger seriously his physical, mental, moral, or emotional health; or
    • the custodian appointed under the prior decree has placed the child with a de facto custodian.
