Most orders made by the court are modifiable. There are different tests that the court will use to determine whether or not an order should be modified. If you believe an order should be modified, continue to comply with the court order until it is actually modified. If an order is not modified, the current order will continue. Do not disregard a court order no matter how unfair you believe it is.
Modification Of Child Visitation Orders:
Child visitation orders may be modified at any time before the visitation orders terminate as long as the party moving for the modification can show that there has been a change in circumstances affecting the welfare of the child(ren) since the last order.
Such changes in circumstances include (but are by no means limited to):

- Change in residence of one of the parents. (This may require a motion for a "move-away order")
- The desire of an older child to increase or decrease visitation.
- Evidence of abuse of a child.
- Alteration of the child(ren)'s school schedule
