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, I can help you to articulate your case to the court, and we strongly encourage you to seek the assistance of counsel.
