written permission to move out of state?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My FI and I are moving from San Francisco to Florida for a year while he attends flight school. My preschool age son is moving with us. I have verbal permission from his father to move out of state (he only has 4% custody anyway...), but per our divorce documents need written permission. Has anyone been through this? Anyone have a template I can work off of? Can I get away with just writing a 2 sentence thing and having him sign it?

Would it need to be notorized? I doubt he would change his mind and try to challenge it in court, because it would be his signature and he couldn't lie about that, but would, for instance, a school or dr. office? My guess is no, since they would not be a party to what was laid out in the divorce aggreement, but then again, maybe they are more strict on that kind of thing in a different region of the US...

Anyone BTDT? Thanks!

I wouldn't think it would need to be very long. Just enough to explain the situation. I would get it notarized, though, just to CYA.

Most states will let you move, even without "permission" if it betters the life of the family. (school will never be denied)

If it's spelled out in your divorce, then I'd get it done. Just a little something saying that he is fine with you moving to Florida and yes, I'd get it notarized just to be safe. You wouldn't need it for school or doctors or anything like that, just a CYA in case he does decide to be mean. When I moved in with my dad, my mom did write and sign a note saying she was fine with it, but he never had to present that note to anyone, even to get me put on his insurance. It's for your files, and for any court proceedings.
