You use the word decision but I doubt anything at all has been decided. A motion is just a request. Your former spouse could ask for the moon, but I doubt he would get it. I’m not sure about your jurisdiction, but where I am, judges don’t like these 50/50 deals. They just don’t work out very often. The only time it seems to work are when the parents live very close together and they both get along so well, you wonder why they ever got divorced. Hire a local family law attorney and fight his “request”. While you are at it, maybe you should request a few things yourself; maybe a big increase in child support is due.
