I have guardianship of my grandson. I am the Maternal grandmother. The paternal grandparents who are divorced, have court ordered 2 weekends a month visitation, a week in the summer, a week at spring break. Transportation is their responsibility.
They are to share their time between them. Neither parent live in our state.
An opportunity has come for me to give my grandson a better life than we have here, but it means moving 2 hours away. Some have said because of our arrangement I have to stay put Others say I can go wherever I want. I live in Indiana.
You need to take your paperwork to an attorney to review. You will likely need to file a Notice of Intent to Relocate or a modification of the Paternal Grandparents visitation for the move. Two hours is not that far. The Court may just order you to meet them halfway. Your paperwork will have to be reviewed to determine the appropriate action to take. Good Luck.
The answer to your questions may also involve an analysis of which court you are in and what that particular judge requires in that court. I agree that you should take your paperwork to your guardianship attorney, or a family law attorney in that county where your court is located ASAP for a "legal check up"!
