DH has an appointment with a lawyer in the morning. In the meantime, does anyone have any experience in this?
BM is leaving SF due to domestic violence and drug use. She is moving this Sunday to Florida (we are in Texas). The police have not been called during the domestic violence and she is currently still living with SF and taking care of his kids while he works. She decided she was leaving just last night and told DH about ALL of it this morning.
DH is very upset, even crying, that his children are being taken so far away. There is nothing in the CO preventing it but there is nothing allowing it either. The area of the order that is for Over 100 Miles visitation is blank, nothing is checked off on any of the options.
They have Joint Managing Conservatorship, meaning they have all the same rights except she has the sole right to determine their primary residence (there are no restrictions in the CO).
If anyone has experience or thoughts on this, it would be appreciated. We are just trying to figure out what to expect at this point and are very scared that the relationship he has with the boys will dissipitate.
Also, if she does move, would the Texas CS guidelines still prevail or will it all be switched to Florida guidelines?
ETA: I'm looking into flights to get the boys here for a weekend next month. It isn't possible for DH to drive there, get them, and drive back spend time with them then do all the driving all over again as it would leave him with no time at home or to actually spend with them. He would spend all 3 days, pretty much, driving (if it were even possible to make that drive like that).
The flights to get the boys here on any of his days off are over $600 PER CHILD!!! There is no way in hell we can afford $1200 a month to get those kids here for visitation. I have enough issues just being ok with YSS being put on an airplane without an adult as he is a Type 1 diabetic, nevermind that no flight flies straight into our airport from there and he would have to switch planes in Dallas or Houston. Then to have to pay $1200 just to see them, it's impossible.
