What happens if a step-parent is in a branch of the military, and is ordered to move?
The non-custodial parent has occasional visits, supervised, as specified with a court order. My partner has not adopted my son, and we’re not yet married, but we’re discussing long-term plans.
My partner is considering re-enlisting in the Coast Guard (he’s currently a reservist), and we’re close enough to one particular base that it won’t interfere with the visitation, but he can be ordered to move (anywhere, even out of state) at any time.
What would happen in this situation? The current court order specifies supervised visits, and also states that I may not move out of the state. I did not seek a change in order to move to a different county (under advice from the attorney who handled the divorce), because it didn’t interfere with the visits.
Is there a motion I can file for permission to move? And if it were denied, would I be required to stay here? Or would the court allow a move out of state but require unsupervised summer visits or something like that? I don’t want to risk unsupervised visits.
