Whether the cause is economic or otherwise, there are increasing circumstances that require one parent to move a significant distance from the other parent.

Relocation and Its Effect on Parenting Time

When there is a move, it can be difficult and stressful to ensure that joint children can continue existing relationships with both parents. The laws in Oregon and Washington establish procedural rules, notice requirements, and preservation of contact rights in most cases where a relocation is contemplated. It is critically important to follow the rules whether you are the parent looking to move or if you have received notice about the other parent’s intent to move.
