I just want to know where I stand in relation to moving interstate without any type of family court orders. Daughter has been in my sole care since she was 5 months old (now 5). Ex has paid some child support off and on over that time - not paid now for several months. He has seen her 5 times this year and after each visit, he states he can't see her again as it sends him on a bender (not that it's probably important for the question but he's dealing with MH issues and alcoholism). After 5 years, I still deal with his abuse (written) but only to try and keep the relationship with him and his daughter. As time has passed, it is now having too much of an effect on me and I feel like I need the support of a family member (no family in NSW). What should my next steps be under family law? I've asked him recently via text if we should move away (daughter and I). Would a yes response to this be the go ahead I need? Any guidance would be appreciated.
