Rosen Law Firm settled my uncontested divorce back in Apr 2006. I pay child support. My ex-wife and I have joint custody but my son resides with her in North Carolina, I reside in Hawaii. My ex-wife promised my son that anytime he wants to leave he can. He turns 17 this year and has requested to move and reside with me. Also, I want him to live me. In light of losing child support, her only income, she says he can’t go, however, she’ll let him visit. He made it clear to me that once in HI he would not return to NC. I can’t physically place him on the plane and I definitely would not be keeping him from leaving.
To avoid the mess from a missed return flight and from a messy court battle, what could my son do? Is there anything I could do on his behalf to facilitate his move?
