I am currently legally divorced since February 2009, but

I am currently legally divorced since February 2009, but have been living with my ex-husband, whom I share joint custody of our two children, since August 2009. When the divorced occurred we were living in Mississippi, but have since moved to the state of Arizona since October 2010. After all this time we are separating again. My ex-husband is currently in Mississippi with the children for the summer, where I was supposed to fly over to spend the last two weeks before school starts with them. Due to expenses and my job, I was unable to go this year. My ex-husband has been a stay at home dad since the time that we have lived in Arizona while I have had a very good income and supported his spending habits up to this point, but can no longer continue to do that. He is now saying that the children are going to stay in Mississippi with him even though he has no income they have been in school in Arizona for the past 6 years. What legal rights or actions can I take in order to get my children back in the state of Arizona?

My ex and I both love in Arkansas. We (I) have a daughter.

My ex and I both love in Arkansas. We (I) have a daughter. He is not the biological father but his name is ***** ***** birth certificate (his decision). He does not pay child support or help support her in any way other than seeing her every other weekend. He has decided he may want to get a lawyer because he says he doesn't see her enough. (Every other weekend, school holidays like MLK and Labor Day, spring break. Thanksgiving week coming home around lunch on Thanksgiving and from when she gets out of school until Christmas Eve or Christmas evening until the weekend before school starts and 4 weeks during summer.) From. Every where I have read, that seems pretty much what he would get normally being the non-custodial parent. He moved 2 hours away from where we are from, and gets upset that she has things she's doing here (extracurricular) and sometimes his weekends may get cut short or we swap because he doesn't "have the gas money to come down here." Or because we set her summer schedule and the doesn't look at it and be plans things when she's supposed to be with me and we've have plans for the last 4 months. Is there anything I can do? We don't have anything set through the courts.
