Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
You will need a motion to modify custody here to allow you to be the primary parent and permission to relocate.You cannot do this under the existing orders.If you can show a change of circumstances as well as child wants to live with you then you can prevail here.
If you are paying support the other parent should pay you as the primary parent.
You will also have to address travel and who pays for that.You may have to pay for travel of the child to see other parent since you are the one moving away.You may want to consider a local lawyer where custody was heard to file the motion to modify here.Other parent may contest here and a lawyer to help you will improve your chances.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
