Q: I am a renter and I have joint custody I need to move to another apartment within the city within a few miles.
It will not affect the other party's parenting time within any fashion. I don't see anything within the MSA that says that I can't move within the city. Do I need to do anything as far as what the law says?
A: As long as you are not infringing on the other parent's custody/visitation times, you are not prohibited from moving to a new residence. Be sure to inform the other parent of your new residence.
Janice Jacovino agrees with this answer
A: I agree with the other answer and have an additional comment: If the move will cause a change in school then move or the change in school should be discussed and hopefully the school can be agreed to or either parent may need to file in court to resolve the school choice matter.
