My ex-husband and I live in different states. Our custody agreement states that we will meet halfway in a specific city. My ex-husband has now moved farther away and is insisting that I drive even further to exchange our daughter.
If the Court has approved the move, then the meeting point will likely need to be changed. However, if the custody agreement states the specific destination, the agreement must be honored until one or the other of you moves the Court to modify the agreement.
The answers provided in this forum by me and transmitted by users of this forum are not to be considered legally binding in any way, nor is there an intent to form an attorney client relationship. If further information is required, seek competent legal counsel.
This is a tricky question and would largely be based upon the wording of the divorce decree and circumstances. An attorney would need to look at your decree to give you a clearer answer. If he only moved a short distance further (and "short" is a subjective term) then the answer is likely yes you do. If he moved much further a modification of the parenting schedule may be needed.
I suggest you speak with an attorney who is well versed in family law. Many of us here on AVVO will give you a free consultation. Good luck to you.
