My soon to be husband and I want to move out of California, to Montana. My 14 year old daughter wants to go with me. Her father says it's not alright with him and will not give me permission to move her.
The answer to this question depends on your existing custody order, which probably says that you may not move the child out of state (or even out of county) without the father's consent. If that is the case, you will need to hire experienced family law counsel to assist you with a move-away petition.
The advice given in this answer should be reviewed with legal counsel of your own choosing, to ensure that the specific and unique facts of your case are taken into account when evaluating the potential courses of action that are available to you and appropriate to attain your desired result. Therefore, do not rely on this response as a definitive answer to your question, but rather as a resource when considering your options.
