What is a relocation action Hi. I’m Eric Engel, a Seattle relocation and family law attorney with the Engel Law Group here in Seattle, Washington. A relocation action is where a husband or a wife or a mother or father wants to take the children and move somewhere else. Usually a relocation action occurs when the mother or the father want to take the children out of state. You can also file a relocation action in cases where the mother or the father may just want to move across the street. Most relocation.
Actions are filed when the mother or father want to leave the state. Now under Washington law, once you receive notice of an intended relocation that’s a legal document that you receive which says notice of intended relocation you have 30 days to object. Now objecting doesn’t mean sending your exwife or exhusband an email and telling them that you don’t want them to move. Objection means that you have to file a written document with the court stating that you object to the relocation of your former husband or your.
Former wife and you want the court to prevent your former wife or former husband from taking your children with them. Why am I telling you this Because you’ve just received a notice of intended relocation and you’re trying to figure out what it is and what you can do about it. These are the sort of problems with deal with every day. If you’re faced with a situation where your exhusband is trying to take the children and move to Wichita, Kansas or to Chicago, pick up the phone and give us a call. These are the sort of problems.
