Q: Possible to move even if my sons father says no? Pregnant with my fiance and Is child, better opportunities for his job?
I have a court order in FL for my son who I coparent with his father. Our arrangement is 60/40 with me having majority and being his primary residence most of the year and for school. I am currently pregnant with my Fiance and Is first child, would this give me an option to redo that custody arrangement if my Fiance wanted to move out of state since we will be having our own child? If so whats the likely hood of the judge approving this? My Fiance has better opportunities to make more money outside of FL but my sons custody agreement has kept us here.
A: The legal standard is what is best for your child, not what is best for you and your fiancé. If the father does not agree then you must go to court to change the timesharing. There are many factors that the court has to consider. Florida wants a child to have meaningful contact with both parents. Relocation is one of the most difficult issues in family law. Speak with a local family attorney for more specific advice.
