What is Relocation?
If a parent entitled to timesharing with a child seeks to relocate, the parent must reach an agreement with the other parent, or file a petition seeking permission from the Court to relocate. According to the statute, “relocation” means: “. . . [A] change in the location of the principal residence of a parent or other person from his or her principal place of residence at the time of the last order establishing or modifying time-sharing, or at the time of filing the pending action to establish or modify time-sharing. The change of location must be at least 50 miles from that residence, and for at least 60 consecutive days not including a temporary absence from the principal residence for purposes of vacation, education, or the provision of health care for the child.
