    Parent/Grandparent Custody

    My friend (age 22) and her mother have joint custody of my friend's daughter (age 6). This was basically done so that at times when my friend did not have a stable job or place to live her mother would be able to legally take care of her daughter without any hoops to jump through. My friend got a job in Florida (we live in Virginia now) and she has a place to live in Florida. Her mother is refusing to let my friend take her daughter with her because she (her mother) believes that my friend's living situation is still unstable. Can she (my friend's mother) refuse to let my friend's daughter go with my friend?

    It depends on what is contained in the custody order because neither person is allowed to violate it.
    I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice.

    Mother can refuse which triggers daughter's right to file a petition with the family court to relinquish Mother's custody rights. As the facts are filtered, the court will either let the child go with mother to Florida or relinquish Mother's Mother's custody.

    Now the Court will decide which person wants have the better condition and which one can provide the better future to child.
