  • I know here in NY you need to go down to family court. A judge changes it.

  • First, talk to a lawyer.   You have to go back to court to get custody changed.

  • you can file for a modification of the exsisting orders all by yourself. but if he isnt going to agree easily, you might seek legal counsel

  • Depends on what state you live in, what kind of order is in place... this is too broad a query to be answered here. Need more details.

  • Good luck to start with, ive been fighting that for 6 years. It is not easy and it can be very long and painful. Get a good lawyer, doccument everything (if the other parent is not a "good" parent). Unfortunately not all judges are fair. GOOD LUCK!!! =)
