I am getting married this year, my fiancees job requires him to stay within a certain radius of his police department. Therefore we will be moving about 45 miles away from my sons biological father. Can he stop us from moving? Also if my income or expenses change significantly because of this move, could I ask for more child support, especially if my son is spending more time with me?
Unless there is an existing court order that places restrictions on your ability to move within the state you can make the move. Child support does not consider expenses except insurance and daycare. A voluntary change in income on your part is probably not a reason to modify child support.
