Parenting Plan Obligations Outside of Jurisdiction

At the time of the divorce, the court decree allowed me to relocate to Oklahoma City with my two children. A time sharing arrangement was part of the final divorce decree requiring both parties to remain under court jurisdiction with my ex-husband ordered to remain in the Albuquerque NM, metro area. My ex-husband has now relocated to southern California without the court's permission. Am I still legally obligated to abide by the original time sharing plan and exchange arrangements as detailed in the Parenting Plan or is that plan made void by his move?

Re: Parenting Plan Obligations Outside of Jurisdiction

Your Parenting Plan would still be in effect until you ask a Court to have it Modified. The Plan is not void, but you should be able to show that an Oklahoma Court now has jurisdiction to modify the parenting plan. Until this is done, you are still obligated to abide by the Parenting Plan.
