Sole custody question


#1

I have sole custody of my daugther . My new husband just recently received military orders to Japan . My ex has not seen my daugther in 6 years but he says I need his permission to take her to Japan . He lived in CA and I live in NC . Do I need his permission if I have sole custody?

You should post this under Legal Issues to get an attorney to respond.

agree that you should post under legal issues, but my understand is if you have sole LEGAL custody, you make all the decisions and he has no input.

Legal Custody being the operative word there. You can have sole physical custody, but possibly not sole legal custody. You need to make sure what type of sole custody you have.
