The opinion that I express should not be considered to be legal advice that can be relied on. It is based only on the limited amount of information provided rather than doing a thorough review of all of the important information that is required to give accurate legal advice. You should consult with an attorney that has extensive background in the area of the law that your are inquiring about.
Generally when a court enters any order regarding child custody it is required to limit the custodial parent from moving 100 miles farther away from the other parent's residence. If your parenting time order contains that clause you MUST motion the court to move out of the country or you will be in contempt of court.
Its not necessarily an easy motion to win if the other parent objects but with him in prison he will have limited opportunity to object. Hire a lawyer. .
