My sister lives in Missouri and has been divorced about 3-4 years with a 5 year old child. I think she & the dad have joint custody, but the child lives with her mom and dad has visitation rights which he rarely keeps. In the divorce it was stated that they could not move out of state without dad's consent. In September, 2000, my sister was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She is doing great right now, but the disease is extremely unpredictable. Her entire family lives in Tennessee and she wants to move here to be with us so that if she gets sick again, we will be there to help her and so that her daughter will be around family that loves her and spends time with her. Does anyone know what the Missouri state laws are regarding this matter? I think she has to write a letter to the dad stating her intent to move to TN including all the specifics and with new visitation arrangements for him. Then he would have ?? days to contest, and if he does not, she is free to move. If he does contest, they would have to go to court and let a judge decide. Is this correct? Anyone know the particulars? Thanks for any info!!!!!!!
