So there is nothing I can do to stop him from moving?
I have no family near by so I will have to be forced to cut my lease for $2000 and move back because he wants to move away now.
It just doesn't seem fair that he agreed to this arrangement but when I decided to move, he changed his mind.
I guess I should have filed legal papers in December. :(
Obviously, I am more concerned for her than he is.
Thank you for your help
Unfortunately since you are still the physical custodian of the child, and there is no court order placing her with him, you will have to do that. Additionally, you can not force a parent with visitation rights to exercise those rights, and you can not force a child custody modification on a parent who is not the custodian of the child. I know this is not the answer you wanted to here, but considering the legal arrangement as of now you can not prevent him from moving without having the custody arrangement modified through the courts.
