Relocation & Child Custody
Trusted Columbus Child Custody Lawyer
If a parent chooses to relocate 60 days before they move or if they intend to move they need to provide their new address and give a parenting time plan. There is no time period where you have to wait to file a motion to modify somebody's relocation. If you believe somebody's moving and it's not in your child's best interest, you can file a motion immediately and as the court to prevent to move.
The notice must include:
- The intended new address, home and mailing address (if known), and city
- Home telephone number (if known)
- Intended date of relocation
- A brief statement of the purpose of relocation of the child, if applicable
- A proposal for a revised schedule of custody or visitation, if applicable
The relocating parent has a duty to inform others with custody or visitation rights of unknown information or changes of information as it becomes available. Information must be provided unless the court has deemed the child's safety or well-being to be at risk by disclosing the information.
The court considers failure to give notice a basis for the modification of custody and visitation, ordering the return of the child, or cause to order the relocating parent to pay expenses and fees related to the objection of the relocation.
If you feel your co-parent's relocation is not in the best interest of your child, you may file a motion seeking an order to prevent the relocation within 29 days of receiving notification of his or her intent to relocate.
