Generally, the only things you can modify are issues regarding the child(ren), such as possession schedule, support, and the like. You’ll file a Motion to Modify. Then, you either submit an agreed Order on Motion to Modify, or you request a hearing, obtain a ruling, reduce that ruling into an Order on Motion to Modify, and then submit it to the judge for signature. However regarding the term it would be a Petition to Modify Parent-Child Relationship.
