A: Unless your Parenting Plan specifically says he cannot leave a defined geographical area, he can travel freely during the confines of his scheduled parenting time. Many parenting plans include language about notifying for travel out of state, but do not require permission. However, if it is not specifically addressed, it is not prohibited.

A: Unless the custody order prohibits such, the non-custodial parent is generally allowed to travel with the child out of state during his/her parenting time and does not need the custodial parent's permission for such travel.
