If are divorced, getting a divorce or share legal custody with another person, you need to understand that one parent cannot move the children out of Arizona or more than 100 miles away from the other legal parent without legally notifying the other parent. The parenting relocating must notify the other parent at least 45-days prior to the move in advance via certified mail.
If a parent wants to prevent the move, they must file a petition to prevent relocation with the court within 30-days of receiving the notice to relocate.
