Does your current legal document have a residency restriction?
You need to be in an attorney's office immediately & try to keep the child here or lower your child support since transportation is going to be much higher since she is moving!
If you don't have an attorney, you need one -- don't review income tomorrow! The move impacts your child support!

Your rights are laid out in your existing Court Order. Does it restrict her from moving? If not, you can file a Petition to Modify to try to stop the move, but you will have to act quickly and you are probably too late.

You need to either file an enforcement, or modification right now. the longer she is gone, the harder it will be to bring her back. Look in the order for a restriction of her right to determine residence and see if it there, if so, then you can enforce. If not then look for a modification to offset the move by making her bring the child to you.
