Hello and welcome to Just Answer. No attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site, the answers are for general information. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

If the court order has limitations on either parent relocation hen it is easily enforceable. However, if it is silent, then you will have to go back to court to modify the visitation order. You would need to argue that the great distance is a burden and hardship and expense on both you and the children.

Remember to look at your decree and make sure that all of the relocation notification rules have been followed. There are usually detailed paragraphs regarding moving and any modification of plan.

You can try to do mediation. Also hiring an attorney could help you come up with a creative plan that will work for your family. But if you really want to fight the relocation, and its adverse effects, you may have no choice but to go to court.

You can try to do mediation prior to the move to work out the particulars. Hiring an attorney could help you come up with a creative plan that will for your family. But if you really want to fight the relocation you may have no choice but to go to court.

Under 43 O.S. § 112.3, if either party intends to move his or her primary residence or the primary residence of the children over seventy-five (75) miles for a period of sixty (60) days or more when such move is not a temporary absence from the children’s principal residence, the relocating party shall furnish the following information to the other party:

a. the intended new address, including the specific address, if known;

b. the new mailing address, if not the same;

c. the home telephone number, if known;

d. the date of the intended move or proposed relocation;

e. a brief statement of the specific reasons for the proposed relocation of the child, if applicable; and

f. a proposal for a revised visitation schedule with the children.

She should have given you the notice of the relocation and change of sixty days preceding the relocation.

Since she has disappeared, at this point you should just keep a record of your attempts to locate and contact her regarding the missed visitation, and untimely departure. Oklahoma law states that the non-moving parent has a right to object to the move and a hearing may be held in which the court will decide whether this move is in the best interest of the children.

You should always consult a local attorney if you decide to go to court to modify the order.

I hope this helps.
