I filed for a divorce last month. My husband does not want a divorce and said he will fight me every step of the way. Before the divorce we had discussed moving back to be closer to my family in Columbus, OH. We currently live about 2 hours north.
My questions is do I bring up wanting to move now or once I have full custody would I ask the court to move?
I have started a list of reasons why it is in the best interest of our children to live in Columbus.
Current Support System
•Grandma-numerous health problems, undesired living conditions (cats & smoking), criminal record & mental health concerns. Also, questionable relationship with boyfriend and brother (needs constant health care)
•Grandpa-stage 4 stomach cancer
•Aunt-limited communication, criminal record, drinking & drug use
Support System in Columbus
•Grandma-still employed & in good health
•Aunt-has 3 children similar in age and very close (text, facetime, etc.) also was babysitter before move
•Great-Grandparents-retired & in good health
•Great Aunt & Uncle
Husband's Mental State
•History of domestic and other violence
•Currently in anger mgmt
•Controlling & Obsessive behaviors
•Years & years of marriage counseling
•See’s current situation as a game
•Discourages relationship with half-sisters
•Possible inappropriate relationship with step-daughter
My husband has not had stable employment our entire marriage, makes poor financial decisions and has mental health issues. Is this is type of stuff I need to have proof to show to the court for my reason to want to move?
Thanks in advance.
