Custodial Parent Moving out of State


#1

I don’t think she will be violating his visitation right by relocating if she is willing to pay the expense for the airline tickets. As long as the visitation times don’t change then there shouldn’t be anything to worry about.

Yes but what if the paperwork says she cannot take the child out of state?..Thats the issue.

Why does she have it in the paperwork that she cannot leave the state…is there something more here?

Well I guess I need to rephrase that. It says she has to have mediation if she wants relocate. The problem is her ex wont go to mediation, and if he did and he knew she wanted to leave the state he will make an issue out of it.

In that case she needs to make documented attempts to mediate the relocation with the ex and if he refuses then you proceed with your relocation, but you can change none of the aspects of visitation

Okay here is my issue, my girlfriend lives in NC and is divorced and has joint custody and is the custodial parent. She wants to move up here with her son to Virginia and has been offered a job here, but believes her ex will put up a fight even in arbitration. Her ex has visitation every other weekend, and that would not change one bit by her moving here, her son would just fly down there every other weekend. It just seems so ridiculous that our lives together can be held in check like this. What do we need to do get the ball rolling, and how long would it take to get accomplished?[8D]
