I have been going through the legal process in to be allowed to relocate with the children for a job. I spoke to the father about it and he was encouraging me to relocate for the job. Two days later my attorney contacts me with news that he was objecting my move and threatening to get a change of custody. We were about to go to court and his attorney gets the date thrown out because he has other cases. His attorney motioned for us to go to mediation. While waiting for this mediation, I have lost the job (so now I am unemployed and looking). He and his wife has now relocated to another state without us resolving this in court. Can he do that? He is suppose to notify me and has not? I learned of the move from the children. He has been trying to take my children. He tells them that when they turn 12yr. old that they can decide whom they want to live with. It seems that all of the rights are for the noncustodial parent. What rights do I have?
