Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
The move I am considering would not affect our current parenting schedule. Are there other objections my ex could raise that the court would consider? His mother has a POA from him and they have a lawyer taking care of his legal issues with his second ex wife. While deployed, can this lawyer take me to court if my ex decides that he objects to my moving?
Hello again and thank you for your reply. Well, there could always be objections and I couldn't really foresee them all since I don't know the complete situation, but you are right in thinking that visitation or parenting schedules are usually the biggest issue. But, for example, the ability to attend school or sporting functions, doctor's appointments, and just flexibility of being close in case of an emergency are generally some of the issues. He could,theoretically, ask his attorney to file an injunction once he gets your notice, but his mother could not use a POA to make those decisions. However, the way the SCRA reads is that he doesn't have to have an attorney step in now if he is deployed. He has the right to not have to deal with the issue until he returns from deployment.
