I am a mother of 2 girls.Ages are 10 and 6.Three years ago I was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor,and given supervised visitation to my 10 year old(different fathers)I am ready to take him back to court for overnight visitation and of course unsupervised.My question is this:Should I move in the same city where the schools are okay,or to another city where the schools could not be better,the distance would be about 20-25 minutes.Im sure my 10 year old wants me right next to her if she could,but I kind of feel like I wouldnt be doing everything that I could for my 6 year old.I am also wondering if the judge would be more willing to give me an overnight visit during the school week if I were 5 minutes away and in the same school district versus 25 minutes away in a different school district.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Answer Question

It shouldn't matter, my husband got overnight unsupervised visitation and we live 2 hours away from where she lives. What the judge will be looking at is, do you have your misdemeanor expunged, have you taken any parenting classes, and are you employed and responsible. Also, if you've never been a danger to your daughter, this helps too. Distance makes no difference here, parenting does.
