I need to know how visitation can be handled in the situation i described.
Would a court do anything to make it easier for my son to visit his child?
If i understand you right, my son isnt allowed to bring baby back to his home 100 miles away until baby is 3-5 years old? Even if girlfriend consents to that?
Second, He is FORBIDDEN by her family to enter their home. Would a court do anything to compel them to let him in to visit? If not what do they do if the non-custodial parent has nowhere to go to visit his child in a long distance situation?
I have a few more questions before closing this out - is there a definition of long distances either by miles or time in car for young babies to be taken by their visiting parent?
Would any of this change if my son went to court to get joint custody?
Could his girlfriend be compelled to move back to our area, where she lived for five months and she was the one to leave with baby?
