Parents of children of divorce must file a Relocation Notice with the Court and other parties with visitation before they can change the child’s primary residence. The notice must be filed 60 days before any relocation and a non-relocating parent has 30 days in which to protest.
The Relocation Notice must contain the following information:
- The intended new residence, including specific address, if known;
- The mailing address, if not the same;
- The home telephone number, if known;
- The date of the intended move or proposed relocation;
- A brief statement of the specific reasons for the proposed relocation, if applicable;
- A proposal for a revised schedule of visitation with the child, if any.
A custodial parent who fails to notify the Court and other parents of the relocation of the child may be held in contempt of court or be subject to a modification of custody.
