I am remarried and have a 50/50 parenting plan with my ex husband. He is still angry and bitter over our divorce and is always taking me to court and calling child protective services. he wants to have residential custody and for me to pay him child support. My new husband and I want to move to Florida. Both our jobs can be transferred there and financially would be better. My ex husband will not allow my 6 yr.old to move with us. I am so torn. I want to move but am scared to lose my parenting time and relationship with my daughter. He always bad mouths me to her and I'm afraid if I'm not with her as much she will be alienated from me by him. Has anyone been in this situation? Please help!!!!

I would do as Shawnn suggested and ask a lawyer. He has every right to say no to you moving the girl out of state with you. Also a judge would have to see for sure that it is not going to cause issue with visitation and such between father and child. Since you ave a parenting plan such as you stated, he could get primary residence based on certain circumstances. Besides that, what about your daughter? How would she feel about being uprooted from all she knows.

So, as I said, you'll need to contact your attorney to make sure that there is court paperwork with orders pertaining to this situation.

His parenting time will not be affected. My parents who live in the area will keep our schedule the same. My fear is he will try to get residential custody and have me pay him child support. As of now we don't have a parent of primary residency. We have a true 50/50 split. I will travel monthly back to the state to see my daughter and want the schedule to stay the same so he can't interfere when I can get back.

Contact your attorney. There will need to be arrangements made so that his parenting time is not affected by a move.
