Thanks so much for your reply. I've been under, apparently, the false impression a particular judge in B'ham court was looking to find the Relocation Act unconstitutional under Alabama law. I do not believe this was my lawyers fault, just merely my own misunderstanding. That's what I've been hoping for since the divorce.
I figured the relocation act was an attempt to protect noncustodial fathers from custodial mothers (the norm) who move children out of their reach. While I can appreciate the sentiment, it's bitten me in the posterior.
I do intend to try and work it out amicably, but I fear that will not be possible. I was hoping to remove the relocation act from her arsenal should she refuse to allow me to move.
Thanks again for this forum and your information!
