Technically, the order would stand. However, if your son is 17, it is pretty much over as he is almost at the age of emancipation. Are you contemplating filing a contempt petition or some other action?See question

The answer to your question is that you must wait for problems to arise due to the other parents' refusal to take care of the child. At the point where you can show the court that the child is suffering due to the other parent's negligence, you can file a custody modification petition and make an argument that you should have primary custody. If the other parent does not cause problems that rise to the level of custody change by the court, then you will not have recourse. Remember that you do not have to pay any more than what the guideline for support states that you must.See question

PA has no official separation laws. There are also no laws that would prohibit you from leaving each other to live apart. You may make decisions about the divorce and custody at any time.

You can, but you may be ordered by the court to return the child until a custody order can be worked out. If the father is a part of the child's life, you might want to obtain a custody order before you move.See question
I'm going through court soon for child support. My wife has took one child to sisters house out of state.
You need to get a custody order in place. Without one, you cannot petition the court to hold her in contempt, which is what you do when the other parent keeps you from seeing your child.See question

If you have a valid reason for believing that she will take them from the state, then you may file an emergency petition. If she leaves with them and you have not filed a petition, you may still do so and force her to return the children.See question
Husband left 1year and 5 months ago. I have primary custody of the children and it says in the papers that he cannot enter without being invited. But his name is still on the deed.
I am not sure from your question if you have an order giving you exclusive possession of the residence, but it sounds like it. If so, you can change the locks. His name on the deed gives him certain rights in equitable distribution, but not physical possession.See question
