Sometimes the other parent files a complaint to change custody because you asked the court for permission to move.
The court must look at the other parent's complaint separately from your complaint to move, even if it seems like retaliation.
If the other parent files their complaint to change custody after the judge already decided your case about moving out of state, the other parent must show the judge:
- There have been other major changes in your child's life. These changes must be different from just moving out of state with you. And,
- Changing custody is the best thing for your child.
