Thank you. 1) do I have to give him something in advance if we do decide to move MN law does not have a specific notice statute in regards ***** ***** However, it is a good idea to provide notice anyhow to avoid seeming "sneaky" or "guilty" of something. The notice may be 2 weeks to 30 days, if one sends it. He can oppose it, but he'd have to prove that the opposition has merit in Court by showing that proposed relocation is not in child'sbest interests and would endanger child's health or well-being, or that proposed relocation is intended to interfere with visitation
rights. Tarlan v. Sorensen, 702 N.W.2d 915 (Minn. Ct. App. 2005). Traditionally, the Court is in favor of relocation in MN. and 2) if he's unwilling to drive her to the new school on his weeks would we have to change the custody with me seeking 100% physical and would the different school ratings have any value in court. We are in MN and the visits are split right down the middle alternating weeks. Not quite. The Court would normally not void visitation unless it absolutely has to. So if by 100% you mean no visitation on his part, this is unlikely unless you can show that he has a drug problem, alcohol dependency, or an unsafe home environment. Abuse and or neglect of the child or previous children are an almost automatic bar for even visitation, although supervised visitation
may be granted by the Court. Assuming this is not true, he is almost guaranteed visitation. If it is too far to do what you have now, the Court may adjust it to LESS frequency and MORE in length. Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal.

Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
