Fort Morgan, CO asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Colorado

Q: My son's father hasn't seen him in 19 months. Can I move out of state with my son with my son's father's consent?

The only court ordered thing was child support. He doesn't care to see his son

A: It depends on the arrangement you currently have- if there is a court order in place, you'll need to modify the terms of the court order first. Your son's father's consent will greatly help in the process as you can file a stipulated amendment to what ever agreement was last adopted by the court. But I would recommend that anything you do be in writing and signed by the both of you, preferably notarized as well.

A: IT DEPENDS. IF THERE IS AN EXISTING COURT ORDER, THEN YOU NEED TO GET COURT PERMISSION FOR TE MOVE. YOU SHOULD GET A LAWYER TO REVIEW YOUR SITUATION AND ADVISE YOU HOW BEST TO PROCEED.
