If there is a parenting plan in Wa. State and you are designated as the primary custodial parent, you must serve and file a Notice of Intended relocation on the Father 60 days prior to any move. He then has the opportunity to object to the move and file a Petition to modify the parenting plan. Failure to adhere to the relocation statute may subject you to a motion for contempt and a court order to return the child to Wa. state if you leave the state without following the Statute.
