X PCS'ng out of country!
      #775627 - 01/26/12 01:39 PM

Many know my situation from my many posts. For those that don't...I was divorced in 2011. I have custody of our 2 young children. I live in one state & X lives several states away. Our agreement when he sees the children(as per divorce decree)states we will share travel costs...we meet 1/2way between the states.

OK...have a very new situation. X informed me he is moving out of the country in 4 months. Where he is moving is the scariest place imaginable...just take my word on it. He has asked me to work on getting the children passports. I do not want our children ever to go there. It is extremely unsafe. So unsafe that I am actually scared for him as well. I want to make it clear that I never intend to keep the children from him...but this is the exception. I am thinking I may need to go to court to have a change made in our divorce decree. I never agreed to travel costs outside the US, but I know this is unclear in the decree as it states I agree to split costs(which could mean in any circumstance). I could not afford the travel costs associated with flights to & from another country. I believe that a judge would agree with me that is exceptionally unsafe to have the children visit in this particular place out of the country. Can anyone comment on this? I need advice. Thx.

You are going to have to be more specific. I m trying to think of where he could be going that you could actually convince a judge is "not safe." If the area is truly "not safe" the military does not allow you to bring dependents.

I can't imagine them forcing you to pay half of international travel. Make sure you can show what it actually cost you to provide 1/2 the travel before; that way you can argue you shouldn't have to pay more than that.

I'm sure I might hear differing opinions, but the place is Honduras.

You will most likely lose if you try to fight trips to Honduras. There is not even a travel warning for that country - and that list is LONG. MEXICO is even on it. But Honduras is not. If it was a country on that list you might at least have a shot. But as long as they aren't traveling alone - I would say they can go.

No way in h3ll would I pay half. A reimbursement of half the cost of travel now is reasonable. And probably worth it to not actually have to drive.
