A: Thank you for your question. Your question is not clear if the other party left the state temporarily or moved out of state. If she moved out of state permanently without your permission and without a Court Order then you will want to file an Order to Show Cause. That is essentially an emergency motion telling the court you have an urgent matter that needs to be addressed. The best thing to do is to consult with an experienced family law attorney who can explain your options and guide you through the process.

A: I gather your ex moved out of the state of New Jersey recently with your daughter and did so without your permission and presumably without getting a court order to permit it to occur. I dont know how often you see your daughter or how often she is in your care, but presuming you live in New Jersey, you have the right to file an application with the court for sanctions against your ex her for actions and potentially to require her to return to the state of New Jersey (presuming a NJ court entered the order for custody and parenting time ) or you can reach out to your ex and tell her that you plan to retain counsel and file that application unless you and she can agree on an alternate parenting time plan that is acceptable to you.
