It must be noted that under Kansas law the only requirement of the moving parent is to mail notification of the intended move to the last known address of the other parent. This makes it extremely important to ensure that your child’s other parent always knows where you live, and that you maintain proof that you advised them of your current address.
If a parent properly notifies the other parent of an impending move, the non-moving parent must object immediately. Kansas law does not require the parent receiving notice of an impending move to approve of the move, therefore if you do not act quickly, the moving parent may move the child without further discussion.
In order to properly object to the relocation of your child, you must file a Motion in the original case seeking a temporary order preventing the relocation. This legally establishes your objection to the move and begins proceedings to determine if the move is in your child’s best interests. This is only a temporary order and will remain in effect until the Court hears all of the evidence and makes a final determination.
