Now that you have custody of your child and your settlement is finished, you may want to move to a new place, establishing your own home in which to raise your child. Before doing this, however, it is important to first know the details of your custody agreement.

Moving Long Distance

Being the custodial parent, you must ensure your custody agreement permits moving long distance before doing so. It is crucial you understand and follow the parameters of your custody agreement. If you do not adhere to the agreement or violate it in any way, even unknowingly, you could be subject to serious legal ramifications. This can include fines and even jail time. If there are errors or incorrect information in your custody agreement, seek assistance from a family law attorney immediately.
