Chicago, IL asked in Child Custody and Child Support for Missouri

Q: my Husband has two children with ex gf and has joint custody.. He moved out of MO does this affect him?

The mother of his children has primary custody so the agreement was for him to get them some days (no nights) while he was living in Missouri. However he moved to IL and is now married to me.. his children come To visit him often and stay here with us while they are on vacation.. did He need to file or notify something/someone with the court of his move and visitation agreement? His ex gf was aware of his move months before it happened and agrees to children visiting us during school breaks.

A: If the visitation schedule has changed and the parties wish to have an modification on file with the court to reflect those changes, making them enforceable, they may do so with an uncontested Motion to Modify. But it's not necessary if both parties are in agreement.
