Some things to keep in mind...so you're not surprised if it does happen. Since you are the one looking to move away, it's possible the courts may require you to pay all or part of transportation costs regarding visitation. And, depending on who you get for a judge, they may say you're free to go, but the kids have to stay...unless the father agrees to the move. Regarding CS, if you have to turn to state aid for assistance with the kids, the state WILL go after the father for CS. There may be variations from state to state, but it's highly likely some version of this will come into play when state assistance is requested.
