    Default Relocating Within a Few Miles, 50/50 Arrangement

    My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Washington

    I don't understand the rules of relocation and notification. We have a 50/50 shared parenting arrangement. I would like to relocate 5 miles within our current school district. My child attends school in my co-parents district. Nothing would change other than our residence.

    Am I required to file a Notice of Intent to Relocate or will an Our Family Wizard message suffice?
    Am I required to notify 60 days before the actual move?

    Thank you,

    Leah

    How far do you live from the other parent (and the child's school) now? What will the distance be after the move? Why are you moving? Basically, I am asking questions to see if anything in your arrangement might give the OP sufficient grounds to bring the matter to court without looking like he she was nit-picking.

    For example, if you are already struggling a bit to get the child back and forth from school on your days, adding 5 more miles might exacerbate the situation. If you are moving in with a new significant other that might impact the children more than you might think.

    Generally 5 miles should not be a problem and notifying him/her over Our Family Wizard might be sufficient...but the devil is in the details.

    What does your existing divorce decree/custody order say about these things?

    The divorce decree controls. After that the statute controls. I'm not licensed in Washington but I'd bet the statute relocation is the usual 25 miles or 50 miles.

    That's the reason why some people don't want to get married and raise a kid because this law.

    I doubt that.
