Given his sentence, I would fully expect the court to modify the current order...while incarcerated there is no way your ex can raise the child...so the modification will be granted to ensure the child is cared for by a parent who is not in jail.As for travel outside the county? That is up to the court...but you can make that request as part of the request to modify the current order.
To make this modification, have a local attorney prepare and present this for you. The adage "a man who represents himself has a fool for a client" is often true. If you act as your own lawyer, the court will expect you to know the law/rules/procedure/evidence just as if you were admitted to the bar. They (the court) will not cut you any slack. If the goal is to win the case, hire a lawyer.Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
Yes...once he is released and able to care for the child, I would expect the court to grant him some time with the child. But one way to approach this is you address this up front...you have the modification fit his sentence (so you get full custody while he is in and when released the judge can modify the order)
So you can do this all in one go.
