In the Melbourne area, there's a local amazing artist that paints ocean and surf art - Damien Share.
Short version is he's been an active dad that loves his kids like we all do. His ex-wife won in court to RELOCATE THEIR KIDS 900 MILES AWAY. He's trying to fight it as you might try and imagine. Solid guy and father. Unthinkable, unbelievale and UNACCEPTABLE.http://www.gofundme.com/747d8o
I'm very surprised a family law judge allowed this. In Florida the limit to relocate without a hearing (where the parent that is relocating has the burden of proof that the move will greatly enhance the quality of life for the children, is in the children's best interest and will not impede the relationship between the children and the non-relocating parent) is 50 miles from the original location (place of residence when the divorce decree was finalized.
From the info you included I find it extremely hard to believe the judge followed any of these statutes as it would be very easy to prove that none of them would be fulfilled by a 900 mile move.
He has got to be crushed as I would be. The judge that allowed this needs to be changed and a new hearing held. Sorry to hear this.
Easy to say when its not you.
Yes - easy to say - hard to do. Again the question is one of priorities( being Dad vs everything else). For me it's always been "family 1st". Maybe thats why I've been married 40 years and still see my children and grandchildren at least weekly and usually a good bit more. Seems to me a good life is often hard.
The view must be nice from way up there...

I'm with Nole66 on this. I've been there...
So you move to VA to sort this out in court while you cant see your kids per the current parenting plan. Its a joke. Its unthinkable. There ya go folks these are the MORONS that are out there day in day out making life altering decisions for families. I hope there's a bus in her (judge) near future.....

Her (judge). That led her to allow the relocation. Valid question I have wondered as well. Anyone can go to the county website and see Damien has no arrest history whatsoever so that rules out any of those kinds of issues for anyone that would need to do that because you dont know him.
@ UP beyond what u think would be possible. She's been waiting nealry 2 yrs to get before a judge to get it fixed. So anything could have happened with Damine. bottom line is 1 single person is in control of ripping someone's life apart.
if the dude is a artist why can't he move? what kind of artist?

I think Demere is posting with conjecture and no one said anyone could not move, that I read. I am still waiting to hear Mr bags already packed answer how he would go sit in VA with a current parenting plan that legally states you get your kids 8 weeks in the summer. You have no choice but to adibe to that if the mom is that hostile. I'd like to hear what the options are. I hope I just dont know enough about it, but seems to me even if he moved with a parenting plan that states you get 8 summer weeks, you still would not be able to see your kids without getting before a judge again. Now you've got a Florida court parenting plan you're trying to deal with in court in another state. Sounds easy to me just pack it up, pack it in............
Have another buddy that the DOR got involved with his child support because they want all child support going thru them. He has every canceled check he wrote his ex-wife for the last 7 years. Every single one. The DOR garnished his wages, sent a letter saying they were going to suspend his DL and told him he is $3000 behind with no accounting justification. Just like that - wages garnished. He is trying not to have to pay for an atty becasue it is cut and dry - he has 7 yrs worth of canceled checks for every single month! He went to court yesterday....judge "oh you needed to petition this form and that form". She would not give him the credit because she questioned the SIGNATURE on the back of the check looking different then the ex's signature on the divorce decree!! On the check in the memo section he wrote "C/S". Judge said "Now I asuuuume that means Child Support". She would not give him the credit and said DOR will have to re-schedule a hearing. I am telling you from seeing numerous people go thru this it is stuff nightmare's are made of.

no doubt....right....I had some legit legal curiosities for this poor man regarding parents rights being in one state (VA) with a parenting plan from another state (FL) limiting your time to 8 summer weeks...but I get it....mr dive deeper and come up faster has all that relocation experience. Maybe demere you can help pro-bono....over and out on this one.....hopefully Damo got some donations from this post and it was worth the time to post.....
It must really be disheartening to work hard to send money to a jackal who is spending your kids' money on thier new man and his toys in another state.
I can appreciate your wish to help the man, but unless you can provide some documentation that supports his side of the story, why would anyone wish to donate to his cause. You need to find some objective reporting on why the judge made the decision. It would be a shame to support the guy and then find out there was a legitimate reason and people were supporting the wrong side of the issue.
I knew a guy who never saw his kids but claimed he was a loving caring father when his ex-wife wanted to move for a better job just to get back at his ex. He failed with the judge also.
