My daughter has full legal/physical custody of 2 sons, age 1.5 & 3, father has supervised visits do to "extreme physical abuse" (case recently closed in dependency court). My daughter has no family/friends in SD, and would like to relocate to neighboring state where she has lots of family/friends and a job offer. The father of the children moved out of state and has not seen them in over 6 months. She does not know his address, friends/family will not give it out, he won't give it out, so she can't serve him. How does she move quickly?Thank you Michael. To clarify, CPS exit orders were non-reunification with father and mother to have sole custody all around, supervised visits to dad. CPS even said if judge did modify orders to give dad unsupervised visits, all my daughter has to do is call CPS when he picks them up and CPS will remove them from him because he is deemed a danger to children. I am not suggesting she just "go", I want to know where to start to get permission to move quickly. She has tried to go to the facilitator's office 3 times and all three times the sign up sheet filled up before her turn came up. She doesn't even know what forms to use and what to put on the forms (there is no "move away" form), and wonder if this justifies ex parte. An attorney is out of the question, we don't have the money - they want $3K up front and he probably won't even show for any hearings (he didn't show for the hearing when CPS closed the case).
