Hello! Please stand by as I work on your answer!
What does her ex want to change about the custody order?
The Judge will determine what is best for the child. If nothing is changing other than the two of you getting married, I do not see a Judge changing the status quo of the order. Of course, ultimately, it will be the Judge's decision, so predicting an outcome is impossible. She should hire an attorney and take this seriously and attend any court hearings that are scheduled. At hearing, she should be prepared to explain why it's still in the child's best interest to live with her and that she be able to continue to designate where the child lives.
