Can a agreed consent order that's one year old be changed at a pre trial conference? If we don't agree?

We agreed and have a signed court consent order one year ago, he now wants more visitation, me to do more travel, and wants a new court order stating this. I do not agree at all, can he have it all changed since he agreed a year ago? What happens at pre trial conference? What is next step if he wants it changed?

  1. You should obtain an attorney. We offer free consultations.

    It is hard to understand what you have written. Was it a temporary consent order?

  3. I am assuming he petitioned for a modification, which he is allowed to do. He is held to a high standard to explain why such a change is in the child's best interest to something he agreed to a year ago. I think the next step after the pretrial conference will be mediation and a trial.
