We have joint custody. I am her primary parentHer father gave her permission to go but out of rage, changed his mind suddenly.
Most custody orders have a provision regarding taking the child out of state. Typically, written permission is required or a court order. This is common in cases where one parent might have more custodial time than another.
Take a look at that provision. You might find that you have to obtain one or the other. In this case, it would be a violation of the court order if you did not comply - so it would not be legal.
If you have a custody order you must look at the provision regarding travel. It may require written permission or not allow travel outside the state at all.
For additional guidance, reach out to a family law attorney as soon as possible.
