If you feel the need for a major lifestyle change or a fresh start after your divorce, you're not alone. It's common for other big changes, like a new job or a cross-country move, to follow your change in relationship status. However, if you have children with your ex and are planning on taking them along with you, there are rules and procedures that must be followed.
In Pennsylvania, the term relocation usually refers to a move a significant distance away that may impact the nonresidential parent's ability to exercise parenting time. A move across town is not likely to be an issue, but if it will take the child out of the county or even the school district, you'll need to give the other parent notice. You are also required by the current custody law to provide a very specific Counteraffidavit to the other parent that they must file timely if they object to your proposed move.
