Good morning. Who sent you this unstopped paper, yesterday? Was there ever a hearing on this?
Thank you for the additional information. Yes, until it is signed and stamped by the Judge, it does not have any legal effect, so you do need to make sure and clarify if this was simply a proposed order OR if the Judge simply forgot to stamp it but did rule/decide. I say this because anything in place at this time, does have legal effect. As such, you can not go against the order or do anything to interfere with the visitation rights of the father. You shared that there is temporary visitation until August 19th, so if you were to move, you would still have to allow the father to see the child, when ordered.Then, if the Judge did in fact grant and rule that the father should have him every other weekend, that would be in effect as well. As such, moving 5 hours away would likely interfere with the visitation, as a result of the distance that would need to be traveled. With that being said, it is best to not relocate at this time, unless you can do so without interfering with his visitation. With custody and filing, you would need to do so once the State/County becomes the permanent residency of the child/home state and 6 months have passed.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or concerns. I am here to help, so please just let me know.
