Hi all.

I have a question for a friend. She divorced her hubby around 5 years ago, they eventually got back together and now she is needing to leave. They have two kids ages 8 & 10. Can she go back to court and revise the divorce decree and custody and visitation or does the decree stand as it is?

The original decree still stands, but she can always go back to court for a modification. What exactly does she want changed?

The custody agreement. The problem is they have 50/50 joint custody and if they separate she will need to move about 2 hours away to stay with her sister until she gets a job and can afford a place. She would leave the kids with Dad, but he gets called out of town for work for sometimes weeks at a time.

The custody agreement can be modified as dd says. 50/50 shared parenting arrangements don't work very well if the parents have unpredictable schedules. Moreover the parents hafe to get along. They should try to work out a schedule themselves if possible, staying within the equal time parameter. If they are fighting and one wants primary physical custody and child support, then they will need a modification.
