Actually, it isn't that they are making YOU stay, because the court can't control where you live. What they are saying is that your daughter can't move. You are more than welcome to leave the state, you just can't take her with you. Marrying him is not going to help, because it isn't about your marital status.

If the father is in and out of your child's life, and hardly visiting, then you need to start collecting evidence of that. Start a diary and record every visit. If he is only visiting when he chooses, then you may be more successful if you can propose a plan of periodic visitation. Is there currently court ordered visitation?

The courts decision has nothing to do with your fiance/husband, it's all about the child/father relationship. So yes they can still make you stay even if you are married to the other man.
