Is anyone aware of any Arkansas laws concerning long-distance visitation. My children and I live 400 miles away from their father and the judge ordered every other weekend visitation as if we still lived in the same state. I have been driving to the half-way meeting place for 4 years. I cannot even maintain a full time job because of my travel requirements. HELP! :(

I moved originally 200 miles. He moved 200 miles the opposite direction 1 year ago.

The judge JUST ordered it, knowing y'all live 400 miles apart?

Even so, you created half the distance, therefore you must do your part to facilitate visitation. Is the other parent reasonable? Can y'all come up with a visitation plan together that's more workable? If you can, that'd be preferable. Then EOWE would come into play when you can't agree to other arrangements.
