My ex husband and I have a 4yr old together. We have joint legal custody but he is primary custodian. I want to move to TX with my fiance and his daughter-he has sole custody of her, our kids consider each other brother and sister and call each other as such. a better life awaits me in TX, we would be able to afford for me to go to school and i could be home when the kids would be home. My ex absolutely doesn't want my son to go to school in TX. Do I have a leg to stand on to fight him in court. Our son hasn't started school yet, he will in the fall of 08


Please help

If its anything like Arizona, you don't stand a chance. I even had a dispute assessment done by the court that said I should be allowed to reloacte, had never been married to the guy and as long as he showed up and fought it, the Court sides with the father, and we didn't even have joint custody yet....once that's established and he's primary residential parent, you really don't stand a chance unless he allows it, I'm sorry to say. But then again, I would check with an attorney cause different states treat women differently and here in Arizona, its for sure a Father's rights state, not doubt! They could care less about the moms.

Did you finally move to Texas? I have just concluded a long, drawn-out custody battle in TX -- the reverse of my situation. My son's wealthy father moved from New Mexico to TX as a punishment. I was not consented regarding this decision and took him to court to contest the move as it violated our Massachusetts court order. I believe the court in TX saw itself as a higher court as MA and Federal guidelines were virtually ignored.

In my case, the TX court absolutely sided in favor of my son's wealthy father. I requested but was not granted a guardian ad litem to support the wishes of my son who wrote to the judge and submitted a Parental Preference (to live with me). The Parental Preference was denied.

Beware of taking your case into a Family Court in Texas -- you may find yourself in the position of being heard by a good-ole-boy paternal judge who believes a heavy-handed rich daddy makes a better custodial parent than a devoted, supportive, engaged, and loving mother.
