I have joint custody of my daughter. She loves with me full time and sees her dad every other weekend. Right now we live 45 mins away from eachother. He has never really been there for our daughter. Showing up late to special occasions, pawning her off. Today he told me in 2 months he'll be moving. A four hour flight away. His reasoning is to make more money and support himself. I'm furious. Is there anything about joint where he can't move that far? I want to fight for sole. Our daughter has never been a priority to him, and this was just the icing.

I'll give you a bit of back round on him. When she was first born about 3 months after he slowly started disappearing . He has gone months on end before without seeing her. All last summer all I would hear is my house is too messy my mom will watch her. I have no food. Than I'd often have to go buy him some. 2 years ago he seizured from a side affect of drugs. Lost his liscense and didn't learn because it happened again. 3 times to be exact. He occasionally misses child support payments
And despite all this I never kept her from him. I thought he changed and I settled for joint. What I don't get is he never tried to look for a job here first . Or even a second one? It's not me taking her from him, it's him leaving her. And it breaks my heart. I have a gut feeling he will entirely cut her out with this move. But I also don't want to stop him. If his own daughter isn't going to keep him around there's not much I can do..
