I have a current joint legal/ physical custody order with my daughter's father in San Diego, CA. I plan on moving back to my home state of PA. My daughter's father is active duty navy and deploys for 6 months and also has underway periods of a week to month prior to these deployments. He will most likely not agree to her living with me full time in PA but I would like her to be with me during these time periods. She is 6 years old so that would mean her schools would change. I believe having her with me full time would be the best arrangement. What type of custody agreement would the courts find reasonable if my daughter stays in California with him? Would they find my daughter living with my family and I a better arrangement for her being that she has no family besides her father in CA?
