Legal Question

Asked on: 7/13/13, 11:32 am

I have sole physical custody of my child. I would like to move to another city in the same state (approximately 150 miles from where I currently live). Do I need to go through the courts before I move to reestablish parenting time?

Hello. The starting point is always to view the exact wording of the existing court order. Please do have a private attorney help you and review the wording. If you reside in a remote area, any Minnesota licensed attorney may assist you. There may be extenuating issues or concerns to address as well. Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will confer initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys (myself included) will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.

You do not need consent or court permission. However, if there is a parenting schedule for the other parent, it must be followed unless otherwise modified. You may wish to seek mediation of the issues before relocating.
