Yes. You cannot make any move that would interfere with her father's visitation and custodial rights.

Generally when the parent of a minor child wishes to move out of state or to a location where the distance would affect the visitation and custodial rights of the other parent, that parent must seek the approval of the other parent and should obtain an order from the court granting them permission to relocate the child. The existing orders would need to be modified.

Your first step should be to try to work out some new arrangement with the other parent and seek his cooperation. The court will look favorably upon an agreement reached between the parties and will likely approve it. If the parent's cannot agree the judge will hear testimony and render a decision that is in the best interest of the child.

In any case, you cannot ignore the current court order for custody and visitations. It must be modified.

In most states you do. There are forms you can find online and have both the father and the mother sign them in front of a notary. I have done it in my case just as a safety measure.

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.

No If by moving the party means a move within the jurisdiction of the court that mandated the custodial order, then yes, you may relocate. If the question refers to relocating outside of said jurisdiction, the primary custodial will need the written notarized permission of the non primary custodial parent and/or permission from the court.
