I can't find anything on the internet to answer a burning question, so i'm turning here and hoping some other moms/guardians/whoever can help me!
I am an aunt/guardian and have always wanted to move out of state. My husband and I had planned on this for a long time but put our plans on hold to pursue guardianship of our niece (we say our daughter now.) One of our daughters' bio-parents lives out of state and is ok with the move. The other bio parent lives in the same town we do, and we've never raised the topic of us moving. We've had guardianship for 2+ years, but our daughter has been out of the in-town bio parents house for 4+ years.
We want to move with our daughter, and start our lives about 10 hours away as we've always planned since before we were married. But now i'm wondering what obligations I have as far as informing the bio parents. Do I have to even ask permission, or can I just state what my plan is and follow through? I feel like its' relevant to say that neither bio-parent has provided any type of child support in years.
Any other people or guardians out there who have some insight or have been through a similar thing? Anyone have anything? :)
