Relocation with Children

When a custody or parenting time order is pending or already in place, any relocation by a parent, no matter how far, triggers unique legal requirements and creates potentially complex, new circumstances to address.  If a divorced parent wants to move that parent could be required to notify the other parent and give him/her an opportunity to object to the move. The custodial parent could be required to prove that moving is in the children's best interests. Moving may also require modification of existing custody and parenting time arrangements.  When relocation involves more than one state, parents may need to comply with additional statutes specifically governing interstate custody matters.
