This page talks about rules that apply when someone wants to move, either
(1) with the child, or
(2) on their own (without the child).

It is always a good idea to talk with a lawyer right away if you are planning a move. There could be serious consequences if you move with a child without the consent of the people who are significant in the child’s life.
