Job transfer out of state

Dear JLS:

I would advise you to have an attorney review your separation agreement and/or court order which granted you legal physical custody of your children to determine what your responsibilities to your ex-spouse are. What will happen with the custody and visitation schedule will depend on the amount of notice you give your spouse, how far away you move, your spouses current visitation schedule and pattern in pursuing the same, as well as any other relevant factor. Best of luck with the job hunt!
