I have joint legal custody of my daughter. Ex is military. I try to keep open lines of communication and visits across states since I am in one state and he relocates often. I want to remarry and relocate to Canada w/my daughter. My fiancee has a job, will sponsor us, and we will be close to inlaws. My ex will not even consider it and I wanted to avoid going to court unless need be since he is known to drag things out. I want to keep lines open for talk and visits as well but because of his duty station, she goes 2 years without seeing him. He calls once every few months and I have no number to reach him should she wish to speak to him. I could not fight for sole custody because I ran out of funds, hence he got what he wanted while I settled.
