Q: Can sons girlfriend take daughter that has joint custody out of state without him being in agreement ?
My son and his ex girlfriend had parenting plan/scheduled made per his attorney 3 yrs ago in case their went separate ways. Now girlfriend is wanting to leave in middle of night with all 3 kids (agreed order plan only on 1st child). If she don’t have his daughter back by Sunday/Monday whichever day said, can she be in violation or trouble for violating the agreed order? Concerned Grandmother
A: Yes, she can get into trouble with regards to the child that is subject to an order if she is violating the order by moving the child out-of-state. With regards to the other two children, if there is no order in place she is not violating anything so your son should seek a court order right away. Please have your son call me right away.
