Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No.
Family Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 5 months ago
Absent order you are free to leave the state. Where children are involved you should have agreement or court order before so relocatingmartindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.Counsel can also address and negotiate support for both of you.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”
