    The guidelines do not take your ex's new marriage into account. There are some statutory reasons you may request a deviation from the guidelines. You should contact an attorney to see if any of them fit your specific circumstances.

    You should have your current orders reviewed by a local attorney. Most offer a free consultation. Sole decision making is very unusual in NH. The facts of your case are very importatn to determine if a modification may be in order.

    Keith’s Answer

    You need to speak with an attorney about this matter. I'm assuming your spouse isn't going to agree with the kids living with you primarily. You may need a guardian ad litem involved.

    Keith’s Answer

    there are some options your husband has here. You should contact an attorney immediately to discuss them in detail. Mediation may be required by his parenting plan. I'm not sure if the standards for filing an ex parte motion are met here but that could be an option as well. You don't want to be in contempt for not sending his daughter for her scheduled parenting time. Have him contact an attorney ASAP to get a free consultation.

    Keith’s Answer

    50/50 custody between parents on opposite coasts seems difficult. You should contact a local attorney to review your case as soon as possible.
