Change of Domicile: What You Need to Know
If you are considering a move, you need to make sure you are acting within the law. If a preexisting custody or parenting time order is in place, you cannot move out of state with a child without a court order or consent of the other parent. The same restrictions apply if you want to move instate more than 100 miles away from your current home.
When you petition for a move, the courts will consider a number of factors, including:
- What is in the best interests of you and your children?
- Can a workable parenting schedule be created?
- Is the move being made out of spite?
- Are you moving simply to hurt the other parent financially?
