Re: ''Expenses''

Typically, unless the Order specifically requires one party to pay travel expenses, then that party will not have to do so. However, you have in effect asked a very fact-specific question without providing the necessary supporting facts.

These are complex issues, and it is important that they be handled correctly. Therefore, it is important that you consult an experienced family law attorney to find out what options are available to you based on the facts of your particular case.
