In summary: Childcare - is it more important than time with a parent?
Evaluator's evaluation is contradictory. In layman's terms, "He's speaking out of both sides of his mouth."Qwertyuiop wrote: Evaluator recommends joint legal/physical custody though he also recommends the mother be permitted to move across the country with D3.

That's a draconian measure, dont'cha think, when better household economics would be a sounder solution than eliminating Dad from the child's (near)daily life.
Still, my advice stands on doing the homework of a serious job search in the prospective new location of the child in FL. How much time between now and the possible relocation? Certainly you won't agree to settle, even with her paying 100% of the travel, so you have a bit of time, yes?

$64 Q: How can you have joint legal and joint physical when mother lives in Florida and you live in California.
Ans: You can't!!
If mother moves to Florida, you can expect her to file for custody modification in the not-too-distant future.
Take this to court. Challenge the evaluator's recommendation. California's a 50/50 state. For that matter, Florida's a 50/50 state as well. But to get 50/50 in either state, you hafta live in the vicinity where D3 resides. And if you don't, it might be enough to trigger a significant change in circumstance. And IMHO, this is mother's game plan.
BTW - With mother in Florida, once divorce is finalized, there's no guarantee she will abide by terms and conditions of your parenting plan. Moreover, she knows how this game is played. This isn't her first rodeo!! You must never trust her.
