I do not approve of my daughter having a relationship with these two individuals but my daughter's mother disagrees and allows them to see her behind my back. Can she do that legally. We have shared custody and there's nothing in the paperwork about this. I have proof that they are not good for my... Read more »
Unless you can prove some sort of actual or imminent danger to your daughter from these people there is not much that you can do. The law presumes that each parent will do what is in the best interest of their child when they are with them.
You don't outline any reasons why you would need to notify your ex about your address...if you have minor children with the ex, it would be another matter...If you are required to notify him of an address change, I would suggest that you file a change of address with the Court and send him a copy...

Unless you find some way to afford "legal aid" you may not be able to get your children back. The law is clear: Unless the court changes the visitation order it must stay as it is. Hire a family lawyer and enforce the order. Today.

Motions have been filed for four different things and non-custodial has now done two of them again. Just filed earlier in June, so no communication from court yet. (E.g. leaving the state without proper notice or not even saying that they were out of state a couple days). Thank you.
I have good reason to believe my daughters father (she is 3, we were never married) has taken her out of state (FL to SC). I did not consent to this and was not informed of this. He is refusing to tell me his location or any other information surrounding the health and safety of my daughter, and... Read more »
The first question that the court will ask is how did he get your daughter to begin with. Did you let him take her voluntarily? Was there a specific day that he was to return her? Did you write anything down? If he has really taken her and cut off all communication then you can report it to the...Read more »

The court that adjudicated your divorce has jurisdiction over the minor child. You will have to petition the court and ask for a change in the child custody agreement to allow you to do what you need to do.

Unless there are restrictions in place through the court the other parent can let you see the child as much as you like. The timesharing schedule gives the person who has a specific day priority but does not prohibit contact with the other parent.
