    Default Re: Intent to Relocate in Indiana

    Ex wife. No one has changed states. Itís 30 miles away. She has maintained the visitation. Nothing has changed. We have a decree but it was a mutually agreed decree that we wrote and the judge signed off on. We deviated from the standard on everything. And nothing is in the final decree about this. She kind of agreed that itís bit necessary to rock the boat if all is settled

    Is your friend a family law attorney in the state where the divorce decree or custody order was entered? If not, what is the legal and/or factual basis for your friend's assertion?
    Sometimes a non-lawyer can be right. I posted the statute that supports the friend's comment.

    She was a little concerned something might happen from changing her address through child support office.
    Child support office. That's new. What does the child support office have to do with your agreements? Is she getting state aid? Is child support being garnished out of your pay? If a government agency is in the middle you might have to take the statutory requirements seriously.

    Your friend is right about what should have been done.

    Here's the statutory requirements:

    https://law.justia.com/codes/indiana...7/chapter-2.2/

    It says you must do this, you must do that, but there doesn't seem to be any penalties for not doing this and that other than the CP gets to relocate if the NCP doesn't object within the time limit provided.

    Seems to me that you've accomplished that informally. She told you, you didn't object, nothing else has changed.

    It might be a good idea to file a joint stipulation with the court, explaining all that.

    I googled and couldn't find any Indiana forms. If you google the subject you'll find stipulation formats from other states. If you feel creative you can modify one to fit your local court. If you aren't comfortable with DIY, I can't imagine a lawyer charging more than a couple of hundred to create one for you.

    You also have the option of not doing anything.
    The bolded is TOTALLY unnecessary. Yes, Indiana has detailed guidelines, but the reason why you see no specific consequences for deviating from the guidelines is that Indiana actually trusts agreeing parents to raise their children without court intervention.

    Yes, Indiana will hammer parents who deviate without the agreement of the other parent if the other parent brings it to court, but the last thing that the Indiana courts want is to see is generally agreeing parents bringing things to court unnecessarily.

    We coparent well and get along. She was a little concerned something might happen from changing her address through child support office. But if the only way anything would happen is if one of us initiated it, then we would rather not rock the boat and leave well enough alone.
    Then leave well enough alone. Indiana does allow you to co-parent as you see fit.

    You didn't answer probably the most important question I asked: What do you want to do -- i.e., what result do you want to achieve?

    Iím fine with leaving well enough alone. She is too.. as long as it wonít come back to bite us without one of us doing something to initiate it. She has to change her address with child support office. That was her only concern. We are both good with it.
