The parent cannot move without consent if the non-custodial parent has visitation rights. The custodial parent needs the consent of the NC parent or if that's not forthcoming the consent of the court that has jurisdiction.

In most cases, yes.

The parent with sole custody must however inform the court that issued the custodial order and the non custodial parent before the move.

The non custodial parent will be given the opportunity to contest the move if he or she so chooses.

In most cases a move out of country is done without the other parent knowing. If this happens there are organizations that can help you get your child back. COntact the Red Cross for information if needed.

Not without consent of the other parent. In Michigan the Parent with custody has to live with in 80 miles of the other parent, or get written consent from the other parent and get that consent approved by the courts to live outside of that 80 miles.

Generally the custodial parent needs the permission of the court to move out of state/country. The consent of the other parent will make the process easier.

You need a letter from the other parent giving permission. Otherwise you risk having difficulty either leaving or returning.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!! With joint custody, both parents have rights and your son needs to find an attorney to make sure she doesnt move the child out of country.

If the parents are married, yes. If one parent has sole custody that parent can consent.
