IF I HAVE A CHILD CUSTODY FIGHT IN ONE STATE (OHIO), AND LIVE IN ANOTHER (NORTH CAROLINA)CAN I CHANGE MY CASE TO MY HOME STATE? AT THIS TIME MY DAUGHTER IS IN MY CUSTODY AND HAS BEEN LIVING WITH ME IN NORTH CAROLINA FOR FOUR YEARS. MY EX HUSBAND LIVES IN OHIO AND IS IN THE PROCESS OF TRYING TO HAVE MY 15 YR OLD COME LIVE WITH HIM. I FEEL THAT IT IS IN HER BEST INSTREST TO STAY WHERE SHE IS SINCE SHE IS DOING REALLY WELL HERE WITH ME.

sorry for caps.

I agree with Carla, I think where it starts is where it stays. That's what was told to me when I moved...not out of state but different city and county.

Don't quote me, but I think where the suit started is where it stays.

I have been through this with my ex. Not to mention I have seen this a million times. Unless your daughter wants to live with him, and unless you are unstable, I don't see a reason the judge would rule against you. The judge will also be able to see if your ex wants to get out of paying child support. They mistakingly think it is cheaper to raise a child than to pay child support! Boy, would he be in for a surprise!

God bless, honey, good luck. Don't freak out.

Law does allow mother to have a say in place where a 15 yr old daughter has to be. may be lucky for you.. But vistation may be stated as problem as father may press this charge. My be daughters views could help the judge in deciding-as she is 15. All you past year records will be scrutinized for this purpose- plus your ex's current life- whether it safe for your daughter etc..
