If your ex cannot show such endangerment, the parenting agreement as it presently stands will be ordered to remain. File a motion to strike or dismiss and go to court to argue that there is no danger to the child. If you are able to do so, go to a law library (or even look online) for sample motions and arguments. Whatever you do, do something. Failure to participate could result in an order you would not like.
