Highlight

When a party moves to modify primary residential responsibility of a child, the district court must consider only the party's motion on briefs, affidavits, and other supporting documents to determine whether the moving party established a prima facie case and is entitled to an evidentiary hearing.
Evidence that the child's present environment may endanger the child's health or evidence of a parent's suicide attempt constitute material changes of circumstance that may justify a modification of primary residential responsibility and establish a prima facie case.
