Q: My kid will be 18 in 4mo n he has main custody. She wants to move wit me, has her ged. Can i get arrested for takin her?
She's home alone most of the time, her dad never got her a dr. Doesnt set her up with appointments or takes her, doesnt cook for her, makes her clean everything and go to the market. He said she can go but gets mad and says no. Can i get arrested for taking her with me we have joint custody. I'm moving to the next state. We currently live in illinois. I get her clothes shoes and i feed her everyday. He says i will have to take him to court
A: There are rules to be followed even if she should be with you. I suggest you talk with an atty before you j u st leave the state.
Cheryl Powell agrees with this answer
A: NO! NOT ONLY ARE U SEEKING TO VIOLATE ONE COURT ORDER BUT YOU ARE ALSO WANTING TO MOVE HER AWAY FROM HIM!
There are two different sets of rules to be followed for each of these problems. Now, will he contest it with only 4 mos to go? It would not be cost effective, but that doesn't mean he won't file simething if u take her and leave. The best thing would be for you to get a lawyer, have that lawyer talk to him and work it out if u can.
