Good morning. Do you have any custody of the child through court order? Were you married to the mother at any time?
Thank you. If you have custody or visitation through a court order, she can not simply move out of town with the child, unless you agree. If she did, she could be in violation of the order and could face criminal charges and be held in contempt of court. If you know this is happening, you need to file an emergency motion with the court, restricting/preventing her from doing this and even going as far asking the Judge to award you temporary custody, until this can be decided.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
