If you have joint custody with standard visitation and not living in the same city and you were to move near your ex is it possible to fight for 50 50 residential custody?

Certainly! Now that you live closer there is no reason you can't have the courts revise the custody papers and you have split custody of the child(ren). However, the two of you are adults and it's best (if you trust each other) that you try to settle things between you without having to go to court. If your ex is uncooperative it's time to have those custody papers revised.

There is physical (residential) custody and legal custody. If you share legal custody with the other parent of if they have visitation rights you cannot move the children without the non-custodial parent's consent and/or court approval.There is physical (residential) custody and legal custody.

He will not get custody, but he can get supervised visitation.

In most states that's considered parental abduction if you have primary residential.

There is no standard since families are not "standard". Visitation schedules must be arranged by the parents. If that is not possible then the court will arrange a schedule and the parties must follow it. Each party should consult with an attorney who specializes in family law. Their professional advice in arriving at long distance visitation schedules can be very helpful.

The mother has primary residential custody. However, the father has visitation rights which are likely set forth in a visitation schedule and he has the right to be included in any important decisions that affect the child. The father should review any documents related to his case including a separation agreement, visitation schedule, child support order and custody order.
