The statutes of West Virginia express a preference for permanence in child custody arrangements. Parents can modify these arrangements themselves, provided they focus on the best interests of the child. The court will only modify a custody order upon a demonstration of a material change of circumstances, which means that the existing custodial arrangement is no longer in the best interests of the child, such as when a serious health problem prevents a parent from taking care of a child.
