I was granted the custodial parent for my two children three yrs ago. She recently informed me that the living situation regarding the kids would most likely change before I got back from my deployment. I had everything in place for them to stay in the same school district and maintain a stable life style during my deployment. She has done nothing for support the whole time I have had them. I have been told she has a lawyer that apparently told her she can take custody while I m gone and she plans to enroll them in the school system near her which is in a different state. Our divorce decree states that all decisions regarding the kids will be made jointly. Is she permitted to legally do this while I am deployed? Thank you.
