Can you get sole custody if your ex-spouse has moved out of state and rarely sees the children?

yes,if he has had little or no contact with the said child/dren,also you can call it abondement no intrest in the child. with the child/dren with you ,you have primary custody as of right now. but, if it comes to court bring evidence such as utility bills that have a change of date on them that was switched to your name after he left, or if you rent ,a letter from your landlord the date he moved out.dont give up,the courts usally favor a mother unless there is child abuse. the parent that the child/dren remained with has a great leap forward for caring for the child/dren first.

The issue of whether the custodial parent can move the children is very tricky. If you are lucky, it was covered in the custody settlement papers. You need to read the agreement to see if it is there. If not, you need to contact your custody lawyer or family court advisor, and see how you can get an amendment to the agreement papers.

That depends on why the mother lost custody in the first place. The court must have granted the grandparents custody for some reason. If they have custody now you have to apply in court for the custody to be moved.

Filed is not custody, and if she didn't have possession at the time, she cannot get temporary custody. He moved faster.

The parent who has temporary custody cannot move with the child. The other parent may find it difficult, if not impossible, to get custody if they have moved out of state. Moving out of state during a custody action will definitely complicate the situation. The parent who has temporary custody cannot move with the child.

Most states lean toward Joint Legal Custody with primary residential custody
