Good evening,Parents are free to relocate, and doing so does not revoke their right to visitation or contact with their child/children. Other state courts would recognize an out of state court order, however, it's obvious that the visitation schedule you likely had in place when the father was living in the same state won't work now. That doesn't mean you should deny the father visitation with his daughter -if the two of you can work out some sort of arrangement, you should do so. Denying visitation (or worse still, contact) would only reflect poorly on you.One or both parents could file for a modification of custody asking to change the current child access schedule. The filing party would still have to show that there has been a material change in circumstances but a parent moving out of state is usually considered a enough of an important factor to warrant a change in the schedule.
