Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Generally, the court will do whatever it believes is in the best interest of the child.....which generally takes into consideration factors involving the parents' character, home environment, family situations, school, etc. Also, the court generally doesn't like to lose jurisdiction over the child....which is what would occur if you were to go out of town.
Additionally, if the child is in school and has an established routine, the judge is much less likely to allow the child to move away.
That would be up to the judge......and he/she could allow both of you to remain custodial parents, with one of you being the primary one. Alternatively, the court could grant you full custody and the other parent visitation only.
It is possible....you could have physical custody and he could have co-joint custody. But, it's really up to the judge and what he/she believes is best for the child.
Generally, no. The judge can require the child to remain in the state, but not the parent.
More than likely, the father would be require to travel back to visit her until she gets older.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
