What would you like to do?
i think the real question is whats best for the child which i think is too often not asked - if your job keeps you away from a young child for long periods of time, if its possible you could be deployed without your child, then perhaps its best for the child to be with the other parent - rather than think what you want please do consider the best interest of the child - please do talk it out with the other parent and your child and do whatever is the best thing for all

Do you have a right to move the child overseas if you have joint custody with father and you have primary physical custody?
No. A minor cannot be removed from the jurisdiction in which the custody was awarded, without the permission of the other parent and the Family Court. In FL our lawyer told u…s it is the other parents permission OR that of the family court. But that both are not necessary to move with the child. ANSWER In NZ i had a similar experience where i wanted to leave for Australia and in order to do so i had to apply to the family court for an order of removal of child and in order for the family court to grant my application i had to have the other parents approval or a valid reason for wanting to move that was in the best interests of the child ie for financial reasons health etc and i also had to grant regular access to the father which did result in split costs of his airfare to Aussie to see his child. The only way around this is if you and the biological parent where not married or living together before or after the birth of your child, this would make him a non guardian and therefore not entitled to a say in the child's life and for that reason you could contest the joint custody. you?
Can you sue for custody when the other parent volunteers for an overseas Air Force assignment to keep her from moving the child out of the country?
Are you married? If not, then any branch on the military requiresthe parent to sign over all rights before deployment (or evenenlisment for that matter). My brother-in-law mar…ried his child'smother so he could keep rights to his child when he enlisted in themilitary. I don't know, however, if this is the case in the even ofdivorced parents. Find out how to contact the appropriateauthorities within the Air Force and make them aware of thesituation.
If you have primary physical custody and joint legal custody do you have move rights then the parent that does not have physical custody when it comes to the best interest of the child?
Answer . yes and no. joint legal basically means the other parent can get any and all legal info on the child such as medical records, school records and of course anythin…g legal or court related if the child gets in trouble and in some cases the other parent is invloved in major decision making like life support etc.
If the parents have joint legal and physical custody of the child but the mother is the primary custodian can she move the child to another school without the father's consent?
It basically depends on where your considering on putting the child, is it within the same school district? Has the custodial parent moved to another home which has a ne…w school? There are rules within schools nowaday and having to get permission to keep them within the same school if you have moved.
This is hard to answer because there can be many variables involved. The noncustodial parent may contest the move and take the custodial parent to court to show cause. But it …may not be possible for the noncustodial parent to actually prevent the move unless the move is out of state.
In California if father has primary physical custody and both parents have joint legal custody can the child choose which parent he wants to live with?
No, legally a minor has no choice in the matter.
It depends on a number of different factors. How often do you have the children vs the other parent? What is your income vs the other parent? etc. Child support is supposed to… reflect the type of lifestyle your child may have had if the parents had stayed together. It is also to keep it fair to the parents. If one makes $50 a week and is told to pay $5 in support, but the other makes $1000 a week, asking only $5 from parent #2 wouldn't be fair. It is based on percentage. So even if you have 50% custody and visitation, if you make more money, then the bulk of support for the child will most likely come from you. Actully its not fair, but we have to pay it because people who dont work hard think it is fair. I work 60 hrs a week and my x wife who left me for another man only works 30 hrs a week. Even tho we make the same money an hr, since I work harder I have to pay the cheating coniving woman.
If you have primary physical custody and joint legal custody can the noncustodial parent stop a child from moving overseas?
Yes, it IS possible they could prevent it. The court may agree that if the child were to be removed from the country (or even the state) that the non-custodial parent would be… deprived of their parental rights, and the child would be prohibited from knowing the non-custodial parent.

That depends on state law where the child legally resides (or country if outside the USA). Every place has a different statute or guideline regarding what constitutes abandonm…ent and in all cases, any extenuating circumstances are taken into consideration before making such a ruling.
What are your rights if you have primary physical custody but joint legal custody with the other parent?
You need to review all your court orders to determine theparameters of your custody arrangement. Generally, your childresides at your residence, both parents must share in dec…isionsregarding the child and both you and the other parent must obey thevisitation schedule as set by the court. You also have the right tonot have the other parent "drop in" at unscheduled times.
this depends on how far the move is taking place, it is best to go through the family court to find out what rights you have regarding a move.
