Hi all. My question is just as topic states. Can a father legally prevent the mother from moving to another state?
There is a single mom with a 15 month old who is dating someone across the country. The father is exploring attorney options, and has already had an attorney contact the mother about getting the right to allow him to pick up the baby. She has refused him to pick up the baby because he is lazy, and can barely even walk around the house without running out of breath because of his obesity when he visits.
I do not believe there is any law that prevents you from moving, but can something be written up by a lawyer to prevent her from moving temporarily? Could such a thing be lifted? What if there is something in place that states she can not move, and she were to marry the guy in another state? Would the marriage be enough to allow the hold to move to be lifted? I can understand a judge not allowing the mother to move if there is no valid reason to do so, but if it's a marriage?
