My sister and her ex are in negotiations to move from joint custody to a situation where she retains medical & educational decision-making and he gets religious decision-making. She lives in NYC and he lives 45 minutes away in New Jersey. His proposal gives her educational decision-making, but requires her to explore schools in New Jersey.
The child is in third grade, and no schooling decisions need to be made until middle school.
Her ex belittles NYC to their child and is campaigning to get the child to desire to live with him instead.
Can he be barred from advocating that the child move to New Jersey in all ways? Is undue stress on the child, who may feel like choosing one place is choosing one parent.
Can he be *required* to positively support the child living in NYC?
