in IL you can't record without a court order unless BOTH parties agree to the recording. So basically the other has to be informed each time and that person has to agree to the recording or it isn't legal and is in fact illegal and can get you in trouble.  I know many other states have the same such law.  I wouldn't trust the certified letter to do the trick here. That wouldn't even come close to flying in my state.

Because of all the he said, she said last time my DH and BM were in court and judge knowing DH was telling the truth but not being able to prove, he wrote in the court order that DH could record the conversations when he was calling to confirm visitation time. But of course then, she just refused to get on the phone etc.

I think this case is not as cut and dry as it seems. BM has a right to move on with her life and find someone else that she can be happy with and be married to just as Will and Kitten have.  I wouldn't be happy about the move to Alaska either but many many people move away.  Going to court to dispute it is the right course of manner here but there is no guarentees that the judge will tell her she can't move. And with the children being 7 yrs and younger, they don't get a say (usually).

I see 2 people who want to be with the children and doing whatever is possible to make that happen.  But both sides can't always win.  My DH's ex was married to a man previously who had a good possibility of being transferred to Colorado.  Yeah, he would've disputed it but the judge would've let them move (9 times out of 10 cases) so there wouldn't have been alot to do.

I agree also that the letter should've been signed but I would've made it very clear the letter would've only been pertaining to these specific dates and not visitation in the whole.  I'm sure the attorney would agree it would've been fine to do.  Just like Catherine and Raisin stated, sometimes you have to pick your battles.  Anytime you ask for change in visitation, you have to expect this. Remember: She doesn't have to change the schedule b/c he has to work or can't make it. It is his responsibility to make sure he can make it on his times and dates.
