I am looking to relocate with my daughter. Right now her father sees her twice a week. The move will only put us 4 hours away. It is to move to the city were my fiance is stationed. I do not want the move to take away the time that my daughter spends with her dad. So right now my thought would be instead of the week spread out over the month maybe once a month dropping her off on a Sunday (for example) and they she can stay the entire week with her dad. Then of course he gets his holidays with her and such. I have no desire to stop them seeing each other. She loves her daddy. But I am just trying to find a way to still be able to have the stable family with the man I am engaged to. So out of all of that I guess my question is that if anyone does a longer distance parenting plan, how do you go about it? I am open for ideas.Answer Question

If you visitation in papers, you need to go back to court I'm sure. It would be in your best interest to have a sit down talk with her father. If he isn't for it, I wouldn't do it. JMO.

I think that would be too hard on her to for one week out of the mo to live over there, so far from mom. Every other weekend, with a week or 2 extra in the summer (but not 2 wks in a row), maybe a week near Christmas and one near Easter.... The week long visits waiting till she is older(4 or 5) Would be better for her head. I say this as someone who grew up w/ divorced parents, the back and forth is just hard on kids...I've been there.
