Hello, Thank you for allowing us to assist you with this problem. I am not fully aware of what prior steps you have taken.
All of what you seek can be awarded by the judge if either the mother does not object to the requests or your boyfriend can convince the judge that such contact is in the best interest of the child
This will be the first day in court. The mother uncooperative so there is a possibility that she will deny him everything. Can he either get his case continued for time to move back to where the children live. Or can he work with the judge to start custody after he has relocated.
He can ask that the matter be adjourned but unless he is able to relocate within a short time period such as a week or two, just a request would not allow him time to relocate. He may have to withdraw his petition at this time and refile after he has relocated if the could will not give him such time to relocate as I doubt he would be granted a long extension
If he did not file the petition can he withdraw it?
