My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Florida
My ex-wife and I have been divorced for over 10 years and she has primary custody. In our divorce agreement it states that she cannot move out of Hillsborough county without my written permission. About 5 months ago she lost her job and now has gotten a new job in out of state. At first she agreed to let my son, who is now 15 years old, move in with me. Now she has reversed her position and wants to have 1/2 the year up there and 1/2 the year here. I told her no, that is not in the best interest of my son. My son wants to move in with me, he wants to spend the last 3 years of high school at the high school by my house and he absolutely does not want to move out of state with his mother. Her household has been a VERY unstable environment and I have had a VERY stable environment. My current wife and I want my son to move in with us and we think it would be in his best interest to do so.
My ex states that her attorney says we should do some kind of attorney mediation, but I'm not sure what good that would do as I won't change my position on this.
Can someone tell me what my rights are? What are my son's rights, especially being the age of 15? And what are my chances of getting custody if we end up having to go to court over this?
Thanks in advance.
