It depends . What is your current custody arrangement ? Sole conservator or joint ?

Does your CO say who can designate where the child will reside or limit you to a certain geographic area ? Usually it would require the courts approval for a move out of state and even if it were allowed you would be the one responsible for all the costs to effect visitation .

My court order says that i have exclusive right to designate the primary residence of the children without regard to geographic location. It also says that the parties agreed not to limit the residency to dallas county or any other county.

You can move but expect him to file a motion to restrict it if he's serious .

It wouldn't hurt to have an attorney look over your CO to make sure .

Give him ample warning , write a certified letter and tell him of your intention to move , request mediation to write up a suitable long distance parenting plan and , please , talk to an attorney first . How far away are you planning on moving ?
