My ex and I have been divorced for almost 3 year and are the worst of enemies. She asked me if I was ok to let her take our daughter OUT OF THE STATE. Without hesitation I told her that was ok but to let me know where. At the same time I told her that I was taking our daughter for the thanksgiving weekend to Nevada. I do accept that I failed to give her the exact details however she did know where I was taking her in full detail because it was the same place I took our daughter last summer. Today is her turn to keep her for a week but she is refusing to tell me where is she taking our daughter just because I didn’t tell her even though she knew. I would at least like to know what state is she taking her and is it the same if she take our daughter OUT OF THE COUNTRY And what can I do? Or what are my options or do nothing and accept the fact that I won’t know where my daughter is and with what people for a week?
It is difficult to answer this question without knowing what your Judgment requires. However, assuming the Judgment is silent on this, you have a number of options. I understand that you don't get along. But, it is best to try. You could write to her and suggest that from now on, you have an agreement to tell each other of any travel plans with your daughter that involves out of state travel. You could suggest that you each provide each other with a general itinerary and contact information. Depending on the age of your daughter, you could also agree that during the other parent's custodial time, the non-custodial parent has a right to reasonable telephone contact with the child. If you can't get her agreement on these things after cordial attempts, you could seek orders from the court. Remember to keep all communications civil, because they are likely to become exhibits in court.
