INTRODUCED

HB 1837 -- Child Relocation

Sponsor:  Patek

This bill repeals the current child relocation statute in its
entirety and, with one minor addition, reenacts the child
relocation statute as it was prior to the 1998 rewrite of the
section.

The bill requires that notice of a relocation for more than 90
days of a child or a party entitled to custody or visitation
must be given to all parties with custody or visitation rights.
A custodial party cannot change the residence of a child to
another state or remove the child from Missouri for more than 90
days without a court order or consent of other parties with
custody or visitation rights.  A noncustodial parent with
visitation rights must be given notice and an opportunity to be
heard.  Violations of court orders under this section can be
deemed a change in circumstances justifying a child custody
modification.
