I want to move to Spain from Massachusetts with my two young

I want to move to Spain from Massachusetts with my two young sons for a transfer opportunity at work. The divorce and custody agreement with my ex gave me full physical and legal custody, and gave him "reasonable visitation". There are no distance clauses. I understand that I need either his permission or a court order to allow for the move to happen.If I can get his permission, what kind of document do I need for him to agree to and sign?

I live in the State of Oklahoma, my parents have been separated

I live in the State of Oklahoma, my parents have been separated since I was two and my mother was given custody of me. I am currently twenty years old and pursuing a bachelor's degree at the University of Oklahoma. I have a history of child abuse with my father and, after a confronting him about it last summer, we no longer speak. From him I have a half brother who is seven years younger than me. I love him dearly and we are very close. My father and his mother are also divorced and he spends one week at each parents' home, alternating every week. Recently DHS was alerted to some of my father's behavior towards my brother and investigated him. He is currently 'being watched' by them. He says that I am the one who called them and that I tried to take my brother from him and so now he refuses to let me see him at all. Before I only got to see my baby brother every few months for maybe a day or a weekend. Now I can never see him again.What I want to know is: can I legally petition for visitation rights? I miss my little brother so very much and I don't know what else I can do to see him.

My 15 year old grand son wrote a suicide note last march. his mother found it. He was taken to a hospital and doctor said he needed an extensive evaluation and counciling. mothers response was to take him out of school. I found out about this two days ago from his older brother, confirmed by maternal grandfather. I have not had contact with my grandson in two years. His mother is angry with me for allowing my 18 at the time grandson to move in with us. Her punishment for me was to cut off all contact with my other 2 grandsons. How can I get help for my grandson and re-establish contact with him?
