You may move to another state, but you must either have the consent of your ex-spouse or the permission of the court before you may move your children to another state. In Indiana, any parent that has or is seeking custody or parenting time must give at least 90 days’ notice of his or her intent to relocate to any other parent or grandparent who exercises parenting time with the children. Such notice is required for any move, whether it is to a new state or to a new neighborhood in the same town. The non-relocating parent can object to the relocation, in which case the court will determine if the parent wishing to relocate has stated a good faith reason for the location and if the relocation is in the children’s best interests.
