he can file for a modification of custody, but the burden of proof he would have to overcome, would make it impossible, he would have to show a "significant change in circumstances" since the previous order, meaning you either have become a drug addict or an unfit parent. If the children are over 14, their choice would be a factor, but aside that he cannot win
