Tuscaloosa Child Relocation Attorney

No one wants to give up his or her opportunity to be an active part of his or her child's life. When parents share custody of a child and one of the parents is considering relocating, there are many questions to answer.

There are many reasons one party may need to move from his or her current location, including job opportunities and family obligations. No matter what the reason behind a potential relocation, the state of Alabama has very specific statutes that govern such situations. For example:

  • Parents must notify one another regarding every move, even if it is just down the street.
  • If a parent is proposing to move 60 or more miles or out of state, the party moving must notify the other party in accordance with the statute.
  • Following that notification, the other parent then has 30 days to object by filing the appropriate documents in court. This objection can impact the ability of the child to move both temporarily and permanently.

These statutes apply equally to custodial and noncustodial parents, and relocation can affect the time you spend with your children.
