Each Court handles this situation different. Case law creates a rebuttable presumption that she can relocate from the State of Arkansas with your son. You have to show she was doing it to try to interfere with your relationship with your son or some other purpose. If permitted, the Court would likely modify your visitation schedule to give you extra time during the summer or other holidays and may make her pay the travel expenses back to Arkansas to visit. In my opinion, it would be important to get started on this quick, so I'd suggest you speak with an attorney soonSee question

Motion for Change of Custody is appropriate. You could also send her an Agreed Order to change custody which is cheaper and quicker and would avoid having to go to Court. That could be sent via email and she'd just have to sign it in front of a notary public to assure it was actually her that signed itSee question
