My son is 4 years old, I have full custody and a permanent restraining order against his father who is a drug abuser, has no job, no car, no house, no nothing and he has unsupervised visitation. He was incarceratd for a year and got out the end of this past february and has seen his son a total of 3 times no longer for then an hour. he has no family, him and his so called girlfriend fight everyday over pills and money and all the sudden he wants to take my son to florida for vacation in september, I am obviously not letting him go, however can a judge make me allow my son to go? isn't there a law that says i have to give my permission in order for him to take my son into another state?

I actually completely forgot to look in the visitation papers and they do say that he can't take my son out of state because he was staying with his girlfriend in kensington, pa at the time we had them drawn up and i said he wasnt allowed to take him to PA he had to stay in jersey with him, so its in the order. thanks lol I wasn't even thinking about that. It's been driving me crazy thinking about it, I have been advoiding telling him no he cant take him because of the fight its going to break into but I feel much better now! Thanks!

Do you have it in the visitation papers that he cannot take the child out of the state? If you do then you can stop him. If you don't then you might not have a choice. You really need to ask a lawyer this question and if you don't have this in your visitation papers then you need to have them amended.
