Q: My boyfriend has a son that he has visitation rights with. Can the mother legally move with his son out of state?

She’s wanting to move to be with her new bf, a guy she’s only been with maybe a month. Eli, the child, has all his family and support system here. He’s about 3 1/2.

Most judges won't allow her to move because theres always a geographical restriction on the final decree. Unless you get an agreed order where there is not a geographical restriction.
