What is "sole primary custody"? Not heard of that legal term. Either a person has sole decision making, or there usually is some type of joint decision making. But primary custody means they pick the child's primary residence, particularly in terms of schooling, and usually receive child support. So we can help you the most, please be very clear with your terms. Also, what state are you in?
Her move away impact will depend on your status, whether you can continue to keep the children close to their friends & in their same school district, etc.
Twelve hours away is a heck of a haul -- that's about 800 miles -- it basically means the children will have their relationships cut off from their friends.
If you can maintain continuity for the child, you can perhaps prevail. But the devil is in the details.
And again, please be very clear on your current status & order info. Thanks -- we're jsut trying to help.
