What is the name of your state? I live in North Carolina. I am divorced and have full care, custody and control (as it states in divorce papers) of our child. There was no court battle, it was agreed between her father and I that I would have custody, it was written in the divorce agreement, and the judge signed the divorce papers, thus making the decision legal. No court ordered custody to anyone, it was agreed upon between my exhusband and I. I want to move from NC to NJ/NY area to make a new beginning. Can I do this? The seperation papers stipulate no "set" visitation, however, I let our daughter go to his house every other weekend from Friday night to Sunday evening. The divorce papers state that I have "full care, custody and control" of our daughter and there is no visitation stipulations, just what we decide upon and I've pretty much set that to every other weekend and one night during the week every other week for a few hours as with what most fathers that do not have custody get. In my moving, I would still allow her visits, the visits wouldn't be as often but in the end there would be as many days spent per year with her dad. As I would allow her to visit for a month during the summer and a week here and there through out the year when there are school breaks. As it stands now i allow her to go overnight to her dads for 50 nights per year and she would still end up having about that many nights per year if we move. I've never tried to keep her from him as I feel it's in her best interest to have a relationship with her dad. So, if we moved, I would still want her to see her dad and though her visits wouldn't be as often, they would be for longer periods of time and in the end, they would have about the same amount of time together. Bottom line, with full custody, can I move if I so desire?
