Do we still need a move away order and can a mediator grant that? 2 Answers as of March 02, 2017

I am moving to another state on Monday with my 5 year old daughter. I have 80% physical custody and 50% legal custody. Her father and I already came to an agreement and had it notarized. How long will the process be if we already have the guidelines in place?

Are there existing court orders? If the father has given you written consent to leave the State with the child that is probably all you need, and you can properly move with the child. A mediation does not grant anything. If there is a court case, the mediator can help prepare an agreement that becomes a court order.

Any new parenting orders should be reduced to writing and submitted to the judge for signature and filing.
