I too have gone through this.
Had a kid at 19...Mom wanted to move out of the state... Our judge let her on the basis that she would be able to provide more for the child in Las
Vegas, than L.A (we were both working actors/models at the time). I get one night every other week IN vegas... I live in L.A.. there's no context
needed to this story. I have no record. Graduated, in college. Nothing was used against me. It was as simple as what happened. Shocked my attorney
Found out later that the judge was her best friends dad. He recuses himself but wont vacate the order... No repercussions...
New judge, by then its 1 year and the new judge says she cant change the order but gives me more custody. 2 nights every other week in los angeles,
meet in Barstow California ( halfway between Vegas and L.A) . BUT she threw out child support, which was a win for me. I choose to pay for things for
the child through my purchases rather than having to give mom money... Much better system.
So in the end I decided to move to Vegas and was given 3 nights a week. joint physical and joint legal custody. One of the better Dad endings.. But it
required I move to Las Vegas. But heck, I'd do anything for my little girl.
I feel.... dads just gotta stick with it. Even if it is a busted backwards thinking system.
