Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. I encourage you to ask me for clarification, if you are not clear with my Answer.
Does your agreement say how much notice each party should be given in case of a relocation?
Is written consent or Court approval required for the relocation?
Nothing is written in the decree as far as legal notice of relocation.
Nothing is written in the decree about legal notice either.
Thank you for your quick responses.
Usually, the party moving must get a written consent from the other party or the Court before the move. Your only recourse here would be to file Complaint with the Court that she is trying to interfere with your custody rights by moving five hours away without adequate notice to you and then refusing to compromise on your weekend custody. You would file the Complaint along with a Motion for expedited hearing. The forms for filing the Complaint and the Motion are available at the Courthouse in the Clerk's office. The forms are self-explanatory. However, if you need assistance completing the forms ask the staff.
