Custody Relocation

When you want to move, a formal notice to your ex can save you a lot of grief in the future. Under Pennsylvania’s Child Custody Act, relocation is defined as “a change in residence of the child which significantly impairs the ability of a non-relocating party to exercise custodial rights.” The Act requires the parent who intends to relocate to provide formal notice to the other parent. Douglas P. Earl, Esquire has vast experience in relocation cases.
