Question: My significant other and I have a child, we are not married, nor is there any court order in place in regards to child custody. We have been living together in CA for the past 3 years and I want to move to AZ with my child without her. Do i need her permission to do that? I have already planned on filing for sole custody once i get to AZ.

Answer: Since you live in California currently, you will need to contact a California legal services program for information about relocating a child. If you would like to read about Arizona’s statutes regarding Custody and Jurisdiction please review Title 25 Marital and Domestic Relations, of the Arizona Revised Statues.You may also want to review the article on “Child Custody” on this website.
