Family Law

Child Custody

Can a parent with custody move out of state with a child without permission of the other parent?

Similar to many family law issues, this depends upon individual state law. Most states have statutes that specifically address the question of the custodial parent’s relocation. In many states, the custodial parent must provide a certain notice to the noncustodial parent and then the noncustodial parent has a right to object.
