My son is 6 years old and rarely sees his father. We don’t have any kind of visitation orders in set; only a child support order. My boyfriend lives in Texas, and we are wanting to move down there to start our new life, and continue my career/schooling. Is this allowed?
If there is no custody order entered, a parent can generally move to another state without the court's permission. That being said, if the other parent files a custody action within 6 months of the move, the court may require that the child be returned to Nebraska while the custody action is pending. This is just a general principle and in practice, it can be much more complicated than this. You would want to speak with an attorney about the specifics of your case to see if this general principle applies in your situation.
Although I am an attorney practicing law in Nebraska, the answer I provide is for general purposes only and does not establish an attorney-client relationship. If you need legal advice, you should contact an attorney who will discuss with you the specific facts of your case.
