Moving out of state can be complicated when custody issues are involved. Check your current order to determine whether a geographic restriction is included in the order limiting the residence of your children to a particular area. If there is a geographic restriction in place, in most instances you will need to file a modification to lift the restriction. Sometimes the other parent conservator is willing to sign a written agreement authorizing the move.
In those instances it is prudent to file the necessary paperwork to formally modify the previous order and have the other parent conservator sign off on the agreed modification.
