You would have to send 60 days advance notice about the move. The other parent will have the option to contest this or not. If it can't be decided between you then it goes back to court if you still want to move.

can a prent who shares joint custody move to a different city but is staying within the same state?

It depends on what type of custody agreement you have with the child's father. If there is visitation set in place and you have joint custody, you cannot move out of state without his permission.

Only with permission from the other parent and the court.

As long as they have the other parents permission i think.

Joint custody is a court order whereby custody of a child is awarded to both parties. In joint custody both parents are "custodial parents" and neither parent is a non-custodial parents, or in other words the child has two custodial parents.

If both parents agree to one parent moving out of state with the child, then you can have your custody agreement amended with new terms.

You should see an attorney. At minimum, you'll probably have to have the custody agreement modified.

It would depend on the distance of the move and state laws.

Yes in some cases if you have good reasons to move. You always have the option of leaving the child with the other parent.

Not without permission of the court and modification of the access rights. see link

If you have joint custody, you cannot move out of the state with the child without the other parent's consent. Even if you have sole legal custody you cannot interfere with the other parent's visitation rights by moving. The visitation order must be modified. Absent the consent of the other parent, you need the permission of the court.

The term "primary joint custody" is contradictory. Primary (or sole) custody means one parent has full rights of decision as to the care of the child, including education, medical treatment, etc. Joint custody means parents share equal rights in major decisions such as moving the child to another state or country. One parent cannot legally take such action without the other's consent or without permission of the court.

User Avatar

Yes because when you can move out with or without custody.

User Avatar

Not without written permission of the other custodial parent or by Order of the Court.

Not without permission from the court with agreement from the joint custodial parent.
