If you are the primary custodian of joint custody and live in Kentucky what would you have to do to be able to move out of state?

Nothing. In Kentucky the primary custodian can move the children without the other parent's permission. (at least that was the law in 2000 when I moved out of Kentucky with my kids). My attorney actually told me to because I had been in an abusive marriage and that was the only way for me to really be safe.

Full custody is defined as one parent of a child having sole control over a minor child with the other having no custodial rights. Primary custody means that both parents share custody (also known as joint custody) but the primary custodian is the parent that the child spends most fo their time with/lives with on a regular basis. In other words, the parent that is not the primary custodian is the one that has the visitation rights.

Primary custody is generally defined as belonging to the parent with whom the child or children reside with the majority of the time. It does not mean that it cannot be a joint custody arrangement as well.

Joint custody is 50/50. Custody means one parent chosen over the other as primary.
