I currently live in Maple Grove. My boys have went to school here for 2 years. I was approved to purchase my own home and would like to move to an area I can afford. Dad is disagreeing and does not live in the boys school district. The move would be in between both of our family's and no more than 30 miles out of the way. It would not significantly impact parenting time. He does not own a home, he rents. I would be buying which would be a permanent residence.
If he disagrees and we dont go to court before the move, what are potential repercussions?
If you share legal custody, it must be joint decision. If you cannot agree, you should try to mediate first. If that does not resolve it, you must file a motion and seek a court decision. You should retain legal counsel.
As counsel stated, if there is joint legal custody, you would need to go through the steps indicated in order to move the school district over his objection.

If you share legal custody with the father of the children, you need his permission to move school districts. The court will want you to try mediation before filing a motion. You should contact an attorney in your area.
