I am married to a army soldier. We have orders to be at fort

This answer was rated:

I am married to a army soldier. We have orders to be at fort carson colorado. I have a daughter from a previous relationship. We have a relocation court hearing scheduled. There was never a court ordered visitiation, there was never any child support paid. I left on the advice of an attorney to CO. I was there 10 days when I was court ordered back to FL. What are my rights on relocation due to the fact im married to a soldier? Do his orders apply to me also, can I tell the judge "we" are court ordered to relocate?????
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

Your husband's orders do not apply to you as well, however, the courts consider military orders of a spouse as good cause for allowing a child to be moved out of state. The fact that no child support has been paid to you and there is no court ordered visitation are also in your favor on the court allowing you to move to CO with the child to be with your husband. The orders are just proof of your good cause reason as to why moving the child out of state should be allowed by the court.

You cannot tell the judge you were ordered to relocate though, that would anger the court. You need to present evidence that there has been no visitation, the father has paid no child support AND your husband had orders and it was good cause to move to CO with the child to be with your husband who was under orders.
