I had was the defendant in a custody proceeding that was heard in 2010. My child was almost four years old (3 years 9 months). The ruling was for joint week on week off, which I was told is unusual (she had sued for full custody
). Since the ruling his mother has had two illegitimate children, one was conceived just before she had filed suit. She is living with the father of the latest child. So since the ruling she has gone from one to three children, and also had abandoned the marital residence in favor of a trailer to be with the father of the latest child. Which she had done without notification. I am at a point where I am considering a relocation
to be closer to someone I intend to marry, and am looking for advice from any one who may have knowledge of general standards for modification. Specifically whether or not there seem to be substantial change in circumstances that would justify modifying the order. We were separated three years ago and the property is still in dispute and I genuinely want to get as far away as possible and begin a new life. I unfortunately also want to oversee my son's education and doubt that his mother would simply agree to less time with him based on how conflicted the divorce had been. Just curious to see if any out there had to consider similar circumstances. Thanks for any input.
