What can I do if I'm married to a man in a different county, but my kids' dad won't give me permission to move with the kids?
Doniphan, MO |
My kids' father won't give me permission to move with the kids to the county that my husband lives in because the kids' father doesn't like my husband, so what can I do to move to the county that my husband lives in?
This is what family law courts are for. In the court in which the current custody order was entered, petition for modification that includes the rights to move the residence of the children. Be aware that movaway disputes are difficult for family court judges, who must weigh a variety of factors. Perhaps the most important concern will be how the move impacts on the ability of the children's father to continue his present involvement with the children. You, of course, can live wherever you wish. What the court maintains jurisdiction over is where the children live.
