Copperas Cove, TX asked in Child Custody and Family Law for Tennessee

Q: Hello, I have recently relocated to TX from TN, Did I do everything correctly legally?

Hello, I recnetly moved from TN to TX where I have a current parenting plan with my child's father. We currently have 90/10 custody/visitation set up where he gets every other weekend. I sent my notice to the father of relocation via certified mail 63 days before the relocation (PCS orders) . At that time the father was planning to make the move to TX in March of 2023 and agreed to keep our parenting plan the same.

I then sent a notice to the courts on 11/7/2022 (60 days prior) informing them of the relocation and that we were keeping the plan the same since both parents were going to be relocating. No objection was filed to the move. We arrived in TX on 1/7/2023 and my husband signed in to the base on 1/10/2023. The father admits he knew of the report date. On 1/28/23 I found out that he filed for an out of state parenting plan and that he was not going to be relocating at all.

My question is, did I do everything correctly? I have evidence of all conversations/notices as well.

A: You went above and beyond, including sending a notice to the Court. If you made copies of the letters, hopefully you sent them by certified mail, then you should be ok.
