My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Pennsylvania
Hello. I'm certain I'll need an attorney, but thought I would submit a post to get a ballpark idea of what I'm about to go through.
I have a 3 year old son with a woman (never married) and I pay her child support on a regular basis. Within 4 months of my son being born she met another man and became pregnant with her 2nd child, so she presently has 2 sons from 2 different men in Harrisburg PA.
Present day (sons are 3 and 2) she is with yet another man who is active duty enlisted Navy and recently said they're getting married. They're living together and she intends on moving with him from Harrisburg PA to Norfolk VA where he'll be stationed. He'll most likely be gone 6 months out of the year, she does not have family in VA and does not have a strong work history.
I spend time with my son every week beginning on Friday after work, return him Sunday late afternoon and we share holidays. While there is not a formal custody agreement in place, this has been common practice and the other father sees his son at least as often. The other father and I would like primary custody of the kids, but because of their age we believe that would be almost impossible.
**Is it likely a Cumberland County PA court would allow the kids to be moved to Norfolk VA as she follows her soon-to-be husband's Navy career? If so, are there any steps that can be done to make this outcome less likely?
Thanks for your assistance.
