The Notice of Relocation must include the following information:
- New address and mailing address (if different)
- New home telephone number
- Date of move
- Proposal for a revised visitation schedule
In addition, if you are moving with the child, you must state specific reasons for the child’s relocation. You must also provide a warning to the non-custodial parent that if they object to the move, they must file an objection with the court within 30 days. This objection must include specific reasons why they object to the relocation.
What Factors Are Considered in a Relocation?
The reason for the move will be the primary factor that the Court looks at to determine if the relocation will be allowed.
Other factors considered include the following:
- The child’s relationship with the person wishing to relocate
- The child’s relationship with the family or other significant persons who will not be relocating
- Whether it will be possible to preserve the child’s relationship with both parents
- What the impact will be on the child’s development
- The age and preference of the child
