My ex has been refusing to even negotiate anything to do with us moving. We will be buying a house 14 hours from where we currently live now.
Our reasons for moving are to be closer to both of our family's, I was offered a great job through my aunt, were in the process of buying a beautiful 4 bedroom house with a huge fenced in yard! Also there's way more activities for the children that are more affordable then here, and my cousin who just moved out of state said she would continue to babysit the kids if I move there.
My ex receives ssi and doesn't have to pay child support. He takes the kids only on the weekends and won't even make the effort to call them during the week. He in no way financially supports them, not even 5$ a week for lunch money. I am 100% financially responsible for them.
Has anyone been through this? I'm scared the courts will deny me the right to move, even though it will be better for us!
I am offering for him to have the kids over summer break, Christmas and one of the spring breaks as well.
Am I being reasonable?
Also the kids want to move, their cousins are their best friends and they just moved 20 minutes from where our new house will be. They currently lived two houses over from us so they spent everyday together.
