I assume you have an attorney. If not, you should. Probably not bad but I gave up predicting what judges are going to do years ago.
There is no way to know for sure how a judge will rule on any given case. Certainly, her current circumstances are important, but the court has to consider all of the changed circumstances which have occurred since the date of the last order and then determine if it would be in the best interests of the minor child for a change in the custody schedule to be made.
I think it would be a good idea for you to contact an attorney in the St. Louis area to discuss your case in more detail.
