Q: I was awarded full custody. Fatherr was awarded supervised visition 1/month 2hrs. Do I need approval to leave out of
State on vacation?
A: The only way to know the answer to this question is to look at your custody order. "Full custody" can mean many different things. There may be rules on giving notice, there may be rules on what states, or it may say nothing. If you have sole legal custody, you're probably fine, but it's best to have an attorney go over it with you to make sure.
Andy Chen agrees with this answer
A: Agree with Ms. Bradley that you should look at your current custody order to see what it says about vacations. I'm not sure how San Bernardino County does it, but the custody orders I see in Northern California counties will generally mention explicitly how vacations are to be handled. For instance, each parent will be entitled to take X vacations with the child per year for up to Y days each. Z days prior to vacation, the parent taking the child on vacation must inform the other parent of the itinerary, provide emergency contact phone numbers, etc.
