| | Re: Can I move out of state?
Most county websites have the basic information, requirements & forms you may need; depending on your circumstances.
There may be other jurisdictional requirements but I'm pretty sure it is handled just like any other lawsuit; the petitioner/plaintiff files in the county where the respondent/defendant resides.
Many legal documents can be notarized out-of-state and forwarded but someone (an attorney or other representative) may need to deliver them to the courthouse in person or mail them directly to the clerk; again - check your county website and/or call your county clerk.
Not sure if there are minor children in your situation but in my state a primary custodial parent can't move outside a certain number of miles from the other parent. They must prove it is within the best interests of the child and a job transfer may not be sufficient. I believe there was a physician with primary custody that had a better job offer in a neighboring state and the other parent objected. The court ruled it would be in the best interests of the children to transfer primary custody to the other parent so the children would not have to move from their home state.
My response is in no way meant to be taken as professional advice of any kind whatsoever.. Just food for thought and a little common sense/real world experience...
