You can't force Dad to sign the paperwork if he doesn't want to. If you can't reach an agreement on your own, then the judge will have to make the decisions for you.

Can a father who has joint custody with the mother stop her from visiting another state with the child

By petitioning the court to give joint custody to the parents. In most state, Joint Legal Custody is the standard. If you mean Joint Physical Custody, with 50/50 Custody, this is more complicated, requiring preparation similar to petitioning for full custody.

As the father has joint legal custody of the child he can not say he does not want the child at the paramour.

By filing for custody modification in the court with jurisdiction, then prove to the court why it would be in the best interests of your child to award joint custody.

Yes, if the court feels it would be in the best interests of the child to award joint custody.

Immigration status generally has no bearing when deciding custody.

If you have joint legal custody then you will need the father to sign paperwork to get a passport for your daughter to leave the country. If she already has a passport and your trip out of the country does not interfere with his visitation then you have every right to take you daughter anywhere you want to take her:-)

Either parent can have physical custody in a joint custody arrangement. If there is a court order granting the mother physical custody the father should notify the court of the mother's incarceration and have that order modified unless he wants the mother to resume physical custody when she is released.

You would need to look at the part of your custody paperwork that pertains to legal custody. Full legal custody to one parent means that they are solely responsible for legal decisions such as medical care, while joint legal custody means that either parent can make those decisions while the child is in their care. In a joint legal custody both parents have equal say and any differences of opinion may need to be settled by the court.

Married or not. If not married, No. If married, father is assumed by law to be the father of the baby.

The court will decide what's best for the child according to the laws of the jurisdiction and the facts of the situation. The courts does not allow a child to make such decisions.

If you have joint custody, then it should specify in the paperwork, but I believe the answer is no you cannot. My paperwork says that both the parents have to agree on ANY major situation before making the changes. If it is an emergency, then it is acceptable as long as you contact the other parent as soon as you are able.

There are two types of custody, physical and legal. Legal custody concerns joint decision making in the child's life including health care, so if you have joint legal custody, the father has the right to object to you taking such an action and it would have to be court ordered otherwise.
