    Default Non Custodial Parent with Supervised Visitation Moves Out of State

    My question involves a child custody case from the State of: South Carolina

    My fiance just got through a divorce and has supervised visitation of his son. We are planning on moving out of state and we are wondering what we would have to do to get unsupervised visitation or how supervised visitation would work? And what would happen if we schedule something and fly home and she blows off the plans he makes? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    what we would have to do to get unsupervised visitation
    There's no "we" here. Whether he can get unsupervised visitation depends on why he got supervised visitation in the first place. He would have to go to court and get that changed. Best for him to do it before the move.

    how supervised visitation would work?
    He would visit the children at the ex's home or some public location, with the ex present at all times during the visit.

    Then he takes her back to court and seeks sanctions.

    The best advice I can give anybody with kids is live in the same town as the kids, preferably a short distance away. And see them every chance one gets.

    There is no "we" here. If he "just got through [the] divorce," then it is unlikely that the court that "just" ordered supervised visitation would change that. What was the reason for the court ordering supervised visitation?

    That said, if he wants things to change, he'll have to file a motion with the court to request a change. He should speak with his divorce attorney.

    As far as "how supervised visitation would work," that depends on what the divorce decree says.

    Any number of things might happen. Does he have any reason to believe this might happen? If it does happen, he could seek to have his ex held in contempt and be ordered to pay his (but not your) travel expenses.

    Only if that is how the court ordered his parenting time to work. Mom is not necessarily the supervisor.
