Can Non Custodial Parents Girlfriend Take Child Out Of State With Our Permission From Me ?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: August 14, 2019

Q: So I am the custodial parent of my 11 year old son. His father gets visitations every other weekend and 1 month in the summer … now it’s summer time and he had advised me he signed my son up to camp , gave me all the information and said he would be starting today July 8th… turns out my son is in a different state with out his father but with his fathers girlfriend and her family . He never told me he was allowing this to happen or even brought it up, if my son didn’t call me I would have never known . Is this allowed ?

A: It depends on the structure of your custody order/agreement. If the order/agreement doesn’t say anything about travel out of the state, then it’s permitted. If you’d want that changed, then you’d need to file a modification petition. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
