Ex-husband moved out of the county and into a new school district without notifying the courts. We have Shared Parenting agreement but I have the kids 70% of the time. He moved across town into a 2 bedroom apartment with his new girlfriend. Our 12 year old boy/girl twins are forced to share the same room.How can I notify the court that he failed to file an intent to relocate? I don't even know his new address - he won't tell me except that it is the city of Fairfield, Ohio and the kids and I live in Milford, Ohio (24 miles away).
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Ohio
Asked him to tell me his address; asked me to give me his girlfriend's last name; and reminded him at least 4 times that he has to file Intent to Relocate papers with the court. He has ignored all three requests.
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX X'X a family law litigation attorney here to assist you.If the court order requires him to get permission to move before transferring to a new location, then you can file a motion for contempt of court for his violation of the court order. The judge could modify or change custody or visitation rights due to this move if the judge believes this will have an effect on the children. Certainly, if the move is going to effect their school district and where they attend, the judge would likely make some change to ensure they can stay in the same school.
