Job Relocation: Its Effect On Parenting Time Schedules

Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

My company is relocating my job to another state. If I move my parenting time will drastically reduce.

But if I stay and quit my job then I will no longer be able to meet my children’s financial obligations, such as paying for their private school.

What are my legal obligations in a situation like this?


I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Indiana divorce laws where I am licensed to practice.

The obligation to continue to contribute to the expenses of private school will depend on the language of the court’s order regarding the expense.

If you relocate, then you will need to file a Notice of Intent to Relocate with the court prior to your move. Even if you do relocate, at least where I practice, you will still be entitled to parenting time under my state’s child custody laws under the section when distance is a factor.

You would need to include in your notice to relocate the impact of the relocation on parenting time and your proposal for exercising parenting time.

Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips for men, so please consult with a divorce lawyer in your jurisdiction.
