My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Michigan. I am wanting to move from Michigan to South Carolina due to the economy being so horrible here. My husband can get a promotion as soon as he gets down there and will be making twice as much money, will have medical and everything. Also I can transfer my job to down there. One problem, my oldest daughter's father is fighting me on moving. She is 11 1/2 yrs old and for those 11 1/2 yrs he hasnt been paying his child support regularly except for a year and a half when he was getting unemployment. For 10 years I would only get it when he filed his taxes. Yes he is a great father but I have 4 other children to take care of and our income is not cutting it.. Ive offered for him having her every other holiday and the whole summer. Sounds pretty reasonable to me. My question is can the courts really deny me the right to move to a different state to make more money and provide a better life for my children? Also does anyone know what the 7 statutes that need to be met by me for the courts to approve my move? Id appreciate the feed back!!
