the courts declaired me the custodial parent and said he could have visitation but he only wanted it once a week. we got back together then he threw me out to be with someone else. i am the custodial parent can i take my kids and go?
I would not advise you to do anything that would change his visitation rights in any way. I.e. if your move would make it impossible for him to see your kids, as per order of the court. If you do not obtain his permission to move/ change the visitation order or permission of the court, the father could go to court. He could ask for his order to be enforced/ state that you are violating his visitation rights and you could be ordered to bring the children back to MA. I have seen judges give temporary custody to non-custodial parents, because the custodial parent moved without permission/ agreement and violated an order.See question
My 8 year old daughter's father has been out of her life for the past 6 years. He only contacted her 1 time about 2 months ago and then nothing. I don't even get messages through Facebook about her. It is causing some emotional distress for her. ...
Have there been any visitation/custody orders in the past? I am assuming since he pays from his SS check, his paternity has been established. If there have not been any orders, he could file for visits, if he really wanted to have contact with her. However, it seems that his contact is very inconsistent. There are ways to protect your daughter - i.e. supervised visits - if he ever did decide to file for them.
It seems that there is more aggravation and fear on your part than anything else. If you feel scared and are worried that someone you know might actually hurt you, you need to contact the police for ways to protect yourself. i.e. a protective order.
