My question involves a child custody case from the State of: South Dakota
My husband is active duty military, and he has sole custody, legal and physical of his two sons, both over 10. He did once share joint with his ex but she refused to cooperate with him about anything, and repeatedly attacked and threatened me in all correspondence and incessantly talks about me and my kids in a nasty way. We took her back to court with the documents proving this and joint custody was taken from her. However, she was not ordered to pay support like we asked, and we were actually ordered to provide transportation and costs for her visitation in July and August. I am forced to deal with her not my husband because he is in the military and not always available. We are ready to move to a new duty station and it will be at the same time as her scheduled visitation and I will be too busy and will not have the money to take them to her because my hubby will still be overseas, and I have power of attorney. I can request the military pay for their ticket but I will need a statement from her that shows her cooperation in helping with a smooth transition and taking responsibility of them when they arrive at her city. Instead of giving me the documentation she just went back to here old ways and threatened me and accused me of ridiculous things, all while avoiding acknowledging her kids. AGAIN. What are my options. I have no choice but to turn in the paperwork without her statement and they will be sent with me. How can I avoid being accused of custodial interference for not taking the kids to her like I'm ordered to if she won't help and I am unable to do it this year? She has NEVER tried to visit them and always blames us for not showing up or doing anything for her kids. She tried to accuse me of many things in court but I had the documentation to prove she was lying. She lost in the end but I am worried, I can't find anything online about that, only situation where the custodial parent wont allow visitation, not the other way around. Please help.
