A: Your parenting plan will govern these issues. If you have a temporary order, this should be addressed in a parenting plan. To the extent he is violating any terms of that order, you may need to file a Motion for Contempt to address it. Consult with counsel if you do not already have counsel.

A: Take a look at your parenting plan to see what it says in regard to situations like this. If the order doesn't say anything about traveling or needing your consent, then he can do so. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
