Relocation

Indiana has strict rules which apply to relocating parents once a custody or parenting time order relating to a minor child has been issued by the courts. Even a move only a short distance away from your prior residence is considered a “relocation” under the statute.  A relocating individual must file a notice of his/her intent to move with the court that issued the custody/parenting time order, or has jurisdiction, to each non-relocating individual no later than 90 days before the date that the relocating individual intends to move. The filing of said notice can potentially provide the other parent a basis to request a modification of custody. Whether you are a relocating individual, or you are a non-relocating individual contesting relocation by another parent, the attorneys at Mitchell Law Group can help you to articulate your case to the court, and we strongly encourage you to seek the assistance of counsel.
