If the father objects, there is as strong chance you will be ordered to return your daughter to Illinois. You should never have made plans without first consulting with a family lawyer. Do so IMMEDIATELY!
Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you.
yes,. do not move. you had to give him sixty days notice of the move before the move according to the new law. apparently you did not.
do not move until either he agrees or a judge says you may.
go hire a lawyer now.
You should consult with a family law attorney to discuss all options before you do anything. You want to make sure you make the right move here. And yes there is a possibility dad could file something to make you come back.
