Yes there is. There is a very serious legal issue. Unfortunately, the law is that she cannot move her baby to another province without the father's permission unless she gets a court order allowing her to do so.It is never easy to get a court order allowing a parent to move the child away from the other parent. Generally, it is considered to be in the best interests of the child to live in close proximity to both parents so that both parents can be involved in the child's life in meaningful ways.Your daughter will have to prove to the court that is in the best interests of the child for her to feel move the child to another province.I suggest that your daughter retain the most experienced family lawyer that she can afford who has experience in mobility rights.
