    Depending on the specific terms of either your separation agreement or the judgment, you may be able to file a complaint for modification, but you will have to show a material and substantial change in circumstances from the date of the decree.

  • Does a non custodial parent lose visitation rights if they moved out of state without getting the visitation order modified

    I have sole physical and legal custody of my daughter and the mother only had a visitation order,she moved out of state without any court modifications

    I agree with Attorney Zawada that the mother may not automatically lose her visitation rights. Absent any modification of the visitation order, any visitation rights she does have must comply with the terms of the current order. It may be wise to file a complaint for modification to address the mother's move out of state.
