Highlight

Post-judgment modification of residential responsibility is governed by statute which provides the standard for a court to apply.

When a prior judgement establishes joint or equal residential responsibility, modification first requires a determination to award primary residential responsibility.

A residential responsibility order provision that automatically transfers primary residential responsibility on the happening of a condition is against public policy.
