What are some requirements for parental relocation?

20366506_S.jpgAs a parent, you may have come to the conclusion that relocation is necessary, whether you need to move for work or another important reason. If you are a custodial parent who lives in Missouri and has recently been through a divorce, it is vital to make sure that you understand what is required of you prior to your relocation.

According to the Missouri General Assembly, parental relocation refers to changes made to a child's main residence for at least 90 days. Before relocating with your child, you may have to satisfy various conditions. For example, you will have to inform anyone with visitation or custody rights beforehand by mailing a written notification no less than 60 days prior to the move, unless the court decides otherwise.

Your written notification must contain a number of elements, such as the date you plan to move, your new phone number (if you already have it), your new address. Depending on your circumstances, you may also have to include a declaration stating why you want to move and a proposal to change the visitation or custody schedule.

While these types of legal issues may feel overwhelming, you should not hesitate to work towards an outcome that will work out best for you and serve the best interests of your child. Sometimes, this includes moving, for many different reasons. By making sure you satisfy all conditions, you may be able to avoid unnecessary stress and uncertainty. Remember, this post does not serve as a replacement for legal recommendations.
