Watch a trial before you need to file a pretrial statement. Then determine what you need to do to have it dismissed for lack of a substantial change in circumstance. Subpoena their medical records (the children's), school records and their teachers (if necessary). Also subpoena the notes from the visitation center and visitation supervisors. Make sure mom is listed as mom on all those records. prepare your questions for mother based on the best interests of the children. Determine who can help you prove your case. Realize mom has the burden.
Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.
