  • Huh? If children are involved then I know that you can't move outside of the school district without filing a relocation paper and allowing 60 days to pass for the ex to object.

  • i am not sure about the ten mile thing. But my aunt in FL could not move out of state without her ex's say so if she wanted to maintain custody of her child. The state did not want her to move unless the father of her child gave consent due to he had the right to have regular visitation with his child. The job offer was great but she had to turn it down because he said no.
