Back in November, a court order was signed by the judge stating that we are to have joint legal custody of my child and that she is to reside with her father in New York. Since this, he has pulled her out of school without telling me until after the fact, and she has moved in with her ex step mother. Also, the court order says that I am to have my daughter fly back to New York out of either Chicago or St. Louis when they clearly knew I got stationed in Marquette, MI. Because of this, I am missing out on visitation because I cannot afford the additional flight costs and taking off work. I told my attorney and the GAL that she no longer lives with her father and that I am missing visitation because of all of this. Can this be changed? Can I win my daughter back and what are my rights?
