518.183 REPLACING CERTAIN ORDERS.
Upon request of both parties the court must modify an order entered under section 518.17 or
518.175 before January 1, 2001, by entering a parenting plan that complies with section 518.1705,
unless the court makes detailed findings that entering a parenting plan is not in the best interests
of the child. If only one party makes the request, the court may modify the order by entering a
parenting plan that complies with section 518.1705. The court must apply the standards in section
518.18 when considering a motion to enter a parenting plan that would change the child's primary
residence. The court must apply the standards in section 518.17 when considering a motion to
enter a parenting plan that would:
(1) change decision-making responsibilities of the parents; or
(2) change the time each parent spends with the child, but not change the child's primary
residence.
