4 times in the last year, my ex has moved with my son with maybe a week's notice. Not through the court or served documents but basically after it is to late. How do I object to her moving if she doesn't properly notify me through the courts?
You have a number of options. You can file a contempt against her and a petition to modify custody if there are other reasons you believe she is an unstable custodial parent, because she has an unstable life(i.e. moving 4 times in 12 months). The statute requires her to file a notice of intent to relocate 90 days before she relocates and you can file an objection to her relocation and move to modify the custody order and/or the parenting time order(if you or the children are having to travel farther and farther with these relocations). You can ask that she be barred from any more relocations without court approval and if she violates that order, it would be the basis to modify custody. Good luck.

Should further steps be necessary you should seek the counsel of an experienced family law attorney and do so as soon as possible as timing in these matters is often most important.
