When a parent decides to move with a child that he or she has custody of, it must be approved by the court before the move can take place. A legal modification to the child custody arrangement must be made. If the parent just relocates and does not have a modification made, they may be held in contempt of court and accused of violating the order, putting their rights at risk.
