Do you have his agreement in writing? If you left Massachusetts with his consent, Massachusetts lost (or loses) jurisdiction after 6 months and then you will have to file in Missouri. If you do not have anything in writing and he may try to say that you left without his agreement, then Massachusetts does not lose jurisdiction after 6 months. It all depends on whether or not you can prove that you left with his consent.
It is a court order. Only the court can change it.
