Hi. I'm new here and am hoping someone can give me advice on what to do. My x and I had a baby, who is now three yrs old. We split even before the baby was born. For the past three yrs, he has been an absent father. Doesn't support his daughter financially and would see her like two or three times a month. A few months after we split I met a guy who is the love of my life. He is my world and he loves my daughter. He lives and works in ny. Has a great Job and recently proposed to me. We are ready to start a family and move on. She has more of a relationship with him than she does with her own father. I decided to go to court and try and get sole custody. Even with all my evidence proving he is mentally unstable and is unfit to be a father. I ended up getting joint custody. Still, he barley see's his daughter. Here is where the problem comes up. My ex and me came up with am agreement where he will allow me to move with our daughter. We even came up with a parental plan. I did everything legally, wrote him a letter stating that I will be moving 60 days from when I sent the letter. I am getting ready to leave in 7 days and now my x, who is barley in my daughters life anyway is flipping out. He is saying I'm a bad person for taking her away from her family blah blah, but he is telling me if I move, he will take me to court to make me come back. I don't know what else to do, I tried going the legal route and it worked against me, even showing how unfit he is as a father. Does anyone have any advice, it will be greatly appreciated.
