I read the comments I could see. Esbeidy, honey, you need to do this legally. If you do not you get to learn how things go the hard way.

1) Set up legal custody and visitation and child support.
2) Only move when you have permission from dad and court.
3) Do not put yourself in the position to have dad go for custody himself based on the fact you just want to move because he is not cleaning up his act and in the military and gone 6 months at a time to far off places.
4) He has every right to his child as you do.

He has yet to know, in all reality it would be hard for him to get custody since he's never really home he's always out in the field and over seas for 6months at a time. But I will tell him to clean up his act or me and my little girl are gone

If you leave, you face a legal battle for custody and joint custody could be very costly. Both emotionally and financially. How far away from Nebraska do you currently live?

Do you a good relationship with dad? What is your current visitation plan?

It's probably best not to. You should have visitation and custody orders in place and get it in writing if you want to leave.
It's best to talk to a lawyer as there are different laws in different states and countries.
