I do have a geographical restriction in my papers. As of right now our court date is the 24th of January. AH! My sons father is not a bad father and I am not trying to void visitation or restrict it.. He will be attending a year round school where he will have several "breaks" from school.. even two weeks. My son could visit his dad during these times and even alternate holidays. My son's father does not stay up to date with his child support, nor has he ever carried insurance on his child. He also has another child that he does not stay up to date on child support or insurance. My son will be 5 this month and will need to start a school in the fall. As of right now, We have had a home study... and the lady recommended my ex to have custody because it would rob him of his support system and I would be introducing him into a new and weird environment. I would be moving with my fiance, whom I have been with for just under three years. He and I are engaged and have chosen not to get married for court... "just because a court system" says so...





Advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi!

I am new to this site, and tried to send you a message but I am unsure if it went through! I am also going through a move away & was wondering if you have any updates on how it went?

I am nervous!

Why are you moving? How far away from his father will you be? What will be the additional cost in allowing your ex his visitation and are you willing to cover that cost? What are the benefits to your son by this move?

No advice as I have zero desire to ever move, but I think those are some of the questions to be answered for court.

I don not know the law in the state you are in, but in Arizona you have to get a court order to move. If you have been the primary custodian for the majortiy of your childs life, then they probally will go with what you are offering. Did you guys go to mediation? Is the dad fighting you on moving?
