Hello!

When both parents agree, it's relatively easy to seek a custody modification.
Either parent may petition to modify custody.
If the other parent agrees, the court will typically grant a petition to modify provided the other parent isn't unfit and provided the children will have suitable living accommodations, etc.
Courts are always charged with protecting the best interests of children involved in a matter. However, when parents agree on a modification, courts are typically accommodating.

I know that this probably isn't entirely what you wanted to hear. However, it's the honest truth and I know you want a truthful answer above all. I hope that you will click accept so that I am paid for my time and effort spent providing this information.
