Taking the kids a distance from the other Parent Page 5 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
and no Web cams, cell phones with video recording capabilities, lots of very cool gadgets that could help bridge the distance is not an option, I want to be able to give the kid a hug.

So my question is, has anybody distanced themselves from the other parent, how did you make it work??


Yes I have distanced myself from my child's father. He lives 16 hours away.

My situation is vastly different from yours. When I went to leave he let me. His family is where he is and mine is where I am.

I don't know what to tell you as he isn't even a part of his child's life and I'm presuming that your children's father is.

I think the best thing you should do if you are considering moving is speak to a lawyer. Your ex can have it stipulated that you can't move within so many Km of where you currently are or you revoke custody of your children to him.

Hire an attorney. If you can't afford an attorney, there is free help at the court.



Mel, go back and read posts 97 & 98. OP's ex has decided to make an appearance.

Just an update, my ex moved 2.5 hrs away from me around my last post. I quit a very well paying job so not to lose my weekday visits and now live a block away and get to walk my boy to and from school and spend the afternoon with him everyday. I have never been happier. Dads just want to be able to love their kids too and every child needs more love.
