I'm in the navy and forward deployed in Japan. I am taking leave to be in the states to visit my family in two weeks. My daughter's mother just notified me that she is taking my daughter to Peru the dates I'll be returning. I never gave permission for my daughter to leave the country and her mom didn't give me 30 day notice. This will be the only time I can see my daughter since September 2015. How can I stop her from taking her when that is my time with my daughter? Our custody agreement says she is to notify me 30 days in advance and she didnt, vacation is only supposed to be 2 weeks and she's going for 3, it is not supposed to fall on my days to visit unless I agree and I did not agree. She already kept me from seeing her last time I took leave for Christmas.
need more info..do you have a court order???not just and agreement between you... if you do read the order....
If you do not you need to go back to the court...if the court order does not say anything about vacation out of the country then you need to go back to the court for an emergency order

All of Ms. Straus’ responses posted on Avvo are intended as helpful information, based solely upon the facts stated in the question, and are not to be relied upon as a full or complete legal opinion. It may not be what you wished to hear, and it does not create an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Straus has been licensed to practice law in California for 33 years. Ms. Straus regrets that she does not provide follow up free advice via email. Good luck.
Filing legal documents with the court to obtain orders is the first step. You really should obtain help from a family law attorney to speed up the process logistically. It's truly unfortunate that she is playing these games when you're serving the country.
This communication does not create an attorney-client relationship. This means that I am not your lawyer and I will not appear in court simply by posting on this site.
