What does it mean?

Relocation is defined as moving over 25 miles to a new home or residence.

Things you should know​

Caregivers with legal custody or visitation rights with a minor child MUST notify the child's other caregiver of their plans to relocate. This must be through a notice of motion AT LEAST 60 days before the planned move.

The motion for relocation must include:

  • the expected date of the parent's relocation, if available

  • the address of the new place of residence, if available

  • how long you are planning to relocate for

Only a child's custodial parent can relocate with the child.
