Recent Joint Physical Custody questions

I am recently engaged and have 50/50 joint physical custody

I am recently engaged and have 50/50 joint physical custody of my two children in Michigan. My JOD states: "Neither parent may permit a person with whom they are having a romantic relationship to spend the night with them in the presence of either of the two children"Can I move into my fiance's house with my children, or will this have an effect on my custody time?The children also currently go to the school that's based on where I reside. Will I have a difficult time changing their school to my new house (they would have to change schools regardless).?

I will be moving soon and my ex will be staying in the same

I will be moving soon and my ex will be staying in the same local area. I'm working on a parenting plan where my daughter who is 7 will finish elementary school in the area with my ex and I will have her during the Summer. Then at the start of middle school she will move out to live with me and spend the Summer with her mom. (Middle school is ideal cause she will have to switch schools anyways.) Then at the start of high school she will spend that time with her mom and I will have her the Summers. The idea is to have the child alternate residents every few years and line it up to when she is due to change schools.Question I have is, have you seen this plan presented before? What is the success rate for this plan? Do you have any advice?

I have a child support question. My husband pays $300 a

Hi,I have a child support question. My husband pays $300 a month to his ex-wife for child support for their daughter. He and his ex share legal and physical joint custody. His ex is remarried, has since quit her job, and helps her husband with his business, which he owns and does quite well with. Could my husband's monthly child support obligation be adjusted/lowered because of this? Thank you in advance for any insight you can provide.
