Can a custodial parent move out of state with the children?

Unmarried father? Know the legal significance of paternity

If you and your significant are not married and the two of you have a child together, you should understand the importance of establishing paternity.

The basics of obtaining a relocation order

A relocation or "move away" order is a court order that allows parents to move their children to a new residence either in the same state or out of state. Relocation orders are, typically, difficult to obtain because the court is loath to allow one parent to remove the child from the immediate access to the other parent. The courts accept the general notion that it is in the best interests of the child if both parents participate in his life, therefore relocation orders that break that mold is difficult to obtain.
