Modifying Parenting Time and the Primary Residence Designation

In Minnesota, a custody order must establish a child's physical custody and primary residence. But nowhere in Minnesota's family law statutes is the term "primary residence" defined. The primary residence definition is important because under Minnesota Statute Section 518.175, subd. 5(a), a court shall modify a parenting time order if it would serve the best interests of the child only if the modification would not change the child's primary residence.
