My STBX is active duty. We have a temporary parenting agreement at this time. We go back to mediation in the summer. If we do not agree on a permanent agreement we will go in front of the judge.
In the past my spouse has objected to me moving out of state even though he deploys and travels often. He is not a resident of the state nor do we have any family in the state at all. He only has every other weekend visitation and I am on my own to take care of our minor child.
He has requested a stay before because of active duty gave the court and myself little notice so I didn’t have a chance to go to court. He knew in advance that he was deploying. I feel he will do it again because he doesn’t want me to appear before the judge. I feel this is a abuse of the stay. I fear he will do this again.
Question: I would like to move out of the state and plan to bring this up during mediation and to the judge. If he deploys before we get a chance to go to mediation or in front of the judge, can I still move out of the state closer to family or would I have to wait until he gets back? If he contents the move with the court when he comes back I will come back for court and explain to the judge I have no help and he is always deployed.
