I live in SD, I have 50/50 split custody of my 5yr old son.

I live in SD, I have 50/50 split custody of my 5yr old son. I am just changing careers and looking at moving 45min away. My ex lives 15 miles out of the school district that my son attends school in and I would be leaving the school district. If I moved would I be the one more than likely to have to become non custodial parent?JA: Are there any minor children from the relationship? What is the custody situation?Customer: Yes my son is 5. We have 50/50 shared parenting with no primary custodianJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: We are officially divorced. 1.5 yrs ago my ex had to quit his job as a high school teacher due to having relations with a high school girl but she was not a minor.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: When I moved from the same school district that my ex is in to the school district that I am now in ,which is 15 min apart, my ex contested that. So Im pretty sure he would not willingly allow me to move and take my son.

Had custody of my grandson for over 3 years? Daughter and

Had custody of my grandson for over 3 years? Daughter and father of grandson both addicted to heroin. In June of 2016 custody was given back to parents. Parents are not together and have split custody. My daughter has majority of the custody because of school. I turned over my lawyer to my daughter and sign a paper so there would be no conflict of interest and he now represents my daughter. I have recently discovered that the father may be using again and the court order in case one of the parents is using the other gets full custody. The question I have is the mother my daughter knows he is using and has still let the child see and visit the father. Is there anything I can do and do I need new representation?JA: Has any conflict of interest been documented or proven?Customer: There has been no conflict of interest between my daughter and myself as of yet. I do think this situation my cause a problem.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No not yet. I just found out that he is using again.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No I can not think of anything.
