The 2 children were born in 2004 & 2006 in Cullman, Alabama until mother moved to Orange Park, Florida with children in spring '08. Father has maintained health insurance for children & mother, provides vehicle & insurance, plus $300 in additional support. Oldest child attended kindergarten 09-10 & failed due to 40 absences. Father has physical custody of both children for the summer & wishes to pursue permanent custody here. They are scheduled to be returned in early August '10. Mother has several criminal issues pending (federal, state, county, city) including an overnight incarceration, year of probation & warrant out for arrest. She has DHR record here for matters of said children & a judgement of termination of her childcare license due to neglect of children at daycare. Thank you.Thank you for your response. There has never been any formal agreement through the courts. All decisions of child custody issues have been by agreement of both parents. Due to the children's expressions of wanting to remain here in Alabama, pending criminal charges and the mother's lifestyle changes, the situation must change. We need to find where our resources would be better served; either in their "home state" in which they've resided or the state of Alabama in which they were born. Again, many thanks.
