Highlight

A prima facie case for modification of primary residential responsibility is a bare minimum standard requiring facts that would support modification if proven at an evidentiary hearing.
If the moving party's allegations are supported by competent, admissible evidence, the court may conclude the moving party failed to establish a prima facie case only if: (1) the opposing party's counter-affidavits conclusively establish that the moving party's allegations have no credibility; or (2) the moving party's allegations are insufficient on their face, even if uncontradicted, to justify modification.
