She hasn't done it yet, but she talks about it all the time.

I filed a petition with the court to relocate but I haven't gotten a date for a hearing. I feel as though I'm being held hostage by the state of Illinois. If he's not complying to the parenting plan (he doesn't see them, call them or pay child support) why do my boys and I have to remain where we... Read more »
So after he said no, I filed a petition with the court. I haven't gotten any response from the court at all. School has started and it will be better all the way around if we moved.
