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

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?

I am legally separated and have a parenting plan in place since

I am legally separated and have a parenting plan in place since July 2011. From roughly September 2011, we have been following a different parenting plan (on our own, not filed with the Court). I now want to get the new parenting plan filed and also convert the separation to a divorce. My ex wants to discuss a different parenting plan but hasn't been amenable to the one I've suggested even though it meets all of her requests. I'm thinking about going forward with the divorce (I haven't mentioned it to her) and modifying the parenting plan at the same time. How do I go about doing that? (One complication is the Separation was filed in a County we don't live in and that is frowned upon by all the other Counties because of how easy they are with paperwork, etc. And I'd like to file in the County in which I live)

In 2011, my ex sued me for visitation with my sons. She is

In 2011, my ex sued me for visitation with my sons. She is not a legal parent, but would likely have rights to one of them under Minnesota 3rd Party Visitation Law. Her standing was never ruled on. We came to an agreement allowing her some time. The judge took our agreement and signed it as an order. Now things have changed and I am no longer comfortable with her having that much time with them. Again, the judge never ruled that she falls under the third party rule and I never stipulated to that. When I tried to change the schedule, the judge told me that I couldn't because I should have foreseen all future issues. He also issued an order for holiday time giving her half of all holidays. (He told us in court that he would treat the case like any other "divorce").Is the order enforceable? Essentially, I see it as a judge ordering me to continue giving my kids to someone with no legal rights to them, even though I now have grave concerns about doing so.
