Hi, thank you in advance for answering my legal question. My ex-partner and myself both reside in the same town and have a soon-to-be 17-year-old and a 15-year-old. I am considering relocating to another city for a variety of reasons - my career, future careers, study options and job prospects for my boys, to reside closer to supportive family members and change of lifestyle. I have not discussed much with my ex due to not knowing whether my application to transfer has or hasn't been successful. Today I found out it was successful, for beginning 2016. To cut a long story short, he found out and rang immediately to inform me that I could not legally do this. We have never had any family court orders put in place and have only ever had a private agreement in relation to child support, visitation etc. He was not only concerned about visitation, but very concerned about paying full child support - which is a private matter and I'm sure options will be discussed fairly and agreed upon at some stage. Both boys have expressed to me they want to move with me; older boy doesn't have a great relationship with dad but younger does. Could he stop this relocation (which is within the same state) from occurring? If so, how? Thank you.
