Are you thinking about relocation? Is the other concerned party moving to another state with your children?
Most states have passed laws that prohibit custodial parents from taking their children and moving out of state without notifying the court and the other parent. These laws were designed to prevent a custodial parent from removing the child from the state without the knowledge of the other parent, which may result in the lack of contact with the noncustodial parent and the child. Furthermore, failure to comply with these laws can result in very serious consequences for the parents who tries to do it. Therefore, it is extremely important that you speak with a lawyer and be aware of the laws of your state regarding the relocation of a custodial parent before you decide to move to a different state or your partner decides to relocate with your children.
