Greetings. First, you should request a deviation from the guidelines. Ask the court to include travel expenses as an extraordinary expense you incur related to the child. Next, no, I doubt that it will be retroactive, but I am sure that you could get it changed now if the circumstances have changed. Just make sure to include the circumstances that have changed since the entry of the last order in your motion. Finally, there is not a standard Motion to Modify Visitation, but these motions are drafted by attorneys specifically for each individual case. Best of luck and please try to have a happy holiday (and don’t worry about the upcoming court date!)
