If a parent has custodial & the child goes to live with the noncustodial parent & we signed an agreement & notarized It. Is there anything we need to legally do for the child to go back to live with the custodial parent? The only thing signed by a judge was the original custody papers.
If the child lives with the noncustodial parent the noncustodial parent will have acquired grounds to file to modify the court orders on temporary orders and a final order.

If you are reverting to the terms stated in the current order, you may want to explore your options for assessing child support with a modification if the non custodial parent became the primary parent and was still paying child support while having the child at their home.
