My ex and I have a current custody agreement in place for only 3 or 4 months now when she decided to take off to another state and leave the children in my care. We came to an agreement after that and now she wants to change it. I would like to keep the current agreement. What can I do to stop this from happening?

Whatever your divorce decree says is what is in place until it is changed by the court. Of course, you can always both agree to change things but that only works if you both agree. If not then the divorce decree prevails until it is changed.
You should go to court and ask to modify the custody agreement because of a change in circumstances.
