Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.To answer your question directly, it appears that based on your decree, you were granted 'primary' legal custody. Legal custody is the right or the ability to make legal decisions pertaining to your children, such as childcare, which church they would attend, what medical care they would be exposed to, and also which school they would attend. That "or" is irrelevant if you as the mother move elsewhere as that grants you the right to enroll your children wherever you reside. I absolutely do not see this as a contempt issue because the "or the parents agree" is a secondary condition, not the primary. The primary condition is the one that grants you the right to make this decision even over the objections of the other parent.Good luck.
