Taking My Child Out Of State Without Custody Agreement

As a general rule, moving with children to the same county or in the immediate vicinity of the non-moving parent is not considered a move. However, it should be noted that the “removal” law in the context of relocation does not define, but focuses on the ability of the non-moving parent to exercise custody after the other parent`s move. Some States may also take into consideration the grounds for the non-custodial parent`s objection to custody. For example, a court can probably decide in favor of the custodial parent and allow the move if the opposite parent: You and your child`s co-parent must sign this document in the presence of a notary.
