Question: I am going to be working out of the country but coming back every 2 months. What can I do to prevent my kids' s father from get sole responsability or custody of the kids and/or making the court believe I am abandoning them?.
Answer: Unless the father explicitly petitions for sole custody, the terms of parenting time will almost always remain the same. Even if the father does petition for sole custody, it has to be under extraordinary circumstances, and the child's best interest, for a judge to change the existing custody orders. If you have sole physical custody and want to move the child with you, then you msut give 60 days notice to the other parent. That time period gives the other parent the oppertunity to get a hearing the child from relocating. For more information, you may want to take a look at the Parenting Time and Custody Article. It may be in your best interest to contact an attorney for any specific legal information.
