CHILD RELOCATION


Moving can be a particularly difficult experience for divorced families.  Placement and custody terms are often made more complicated when parents are faced with addressing terms through a long-distance relationship following a child relocation.

The Wisconsin Family Code includes specific provisions that address the obligations of parents when child relocation is anticipated or imminent.  The formal procedures include notice requirements and permission from a family court in order to change a child’s residence.  If you are considering a move, it is best to talk with a family law attorney sooner rather than later to ensure compliance with notice requirements.
