Thanks for your questions.You have the right to appeal both orders since you had a bad outcome.You can do this by appeal to higher court or by motion to modify the current orders.
A change of circumstances is anything that has caused a need for a change of legal custody.It can be an incident of harm to the children, arrest of a parent, or really any serious incident that affects the children and requires a change of legal custody.The judge decides if this is the case here and woudl rule on your motion for modification.
I know that the appeal is always a possibility. Does the judge in this case have an obligation to vacate the orders based on the rules of Ex Parte? The appeal process takes too long and is expensive. It seems that the Order could be vacated by that judge.
The second part is that now the trial is over and she got full custody, would this situation turn the custody back over if the orders were vacated as if they never were ordered?
