Relocation Cases

It is fairly common for a primary-custody parent to consider moving away with his or her child, for reasons such as pursuing a job opportunity or to live closer to family or friends. In order to move away from the other parent, he or she would need to take legal action.

If a parent wishes to relocate with the child outside of the school district where the child currently resides, he or she is legally obligated to send notice of these intentions to the other parent. The other parent then has the right to contest the relocation.
