What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Georgia
My ex-wife and I are residents of Georgia.
We share Joint Legal custody, and I have sole physical custody.
In the past year since our divorce, she has seen the children no more than once a year, on average for about an hour.
I am in negotiations about an incredible career opportunity located in California, and after trying for weeks to talk with her, filed a Notice of Intent - Relocate with her. She has since still not responded, except to begin asking about custody paperwork from the divorce, and hinting that she has hired a lawyer.
Our Marriage Separation Agreement spelled out that, we would be required to work through Arbitration before court, so I'm not as concerned about that. But, what steps can and should I be taking to help ensure that I can get this move approved?
In other states I can see clear paths for requesting this, and getting it approved with templates and forms, but from what I've heard about Georgia law, now that I have served her with the Notice of Intent to relocate, if she does not respond it's my understanding that I'm able to move.
Is this correct? Is there anything else I can do?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
