This is not as much a form, as a motion. A motion has to be drafted, or you can go to legalzoom.com or uslegalforms.com and purchase it. You file a MOTION TO MODIFY CUSTODY with the same court under the old cause number unless all of you have moved out of the state by now in which the order was made, in which case you file a PETITION FOR CUSTODY in the state where the child lives. The Court decides on custody based on the rule of thumb of "best interest of the child
." This includes, but is not limited to, general stability of the parent, financial stability, indoctrination of the child in the current school and environment, household condition and living condition of the child, other persons living in the house, etc.
Best of luck in your matter. I'm here if you need any more clarification or follow up information.
