Yes provided there is not a court order preventing the relocationAbsent a court order or proceeding concerning the child, the parent in possession of the child has custody can choose whether to allow the child to visit with the other parent.This means that without a court order concerning the child, both the mother and the father have equal rights. The parent that the child is with has the right to relocate or travel with his child as he sees fit and to deny visitation to the other parent.
