ALERT: There have been significant changes to Pennsylvania’s child custody law, which became effective on January 24, 2011.
One of the most important concerns relocation cases. There are strict notice requirements and stringent procedures to be followed by a parent objecting to a proposed relocation.
An objection must be filed with the Court within 30 days of receipt of the notice of proposed relocation and must be served upon the other party by certified mail, return receipt requested.
If this is not done, consent to the proposed relocation will be presumed, and, perhaps most importantly, if these procedures are not followed, the relocation cannot be challenged later in a modification petition.
This is major because, it appears that the standard of “the best interest of the child” can lose out to procedural rules.
The bottom line: If you receive notice of a proposed relocation from the primary custodial parent of your child, contact your attorney immediately.
