Can I change the state where the case is being heard?
Maybe. If you move to another state, you may be able to change the state where the custody case is being heard. However, if the other parent disagrees with moving the case or if the court has already spent a lot of time and resources on the case, it may be hard to get it transferred. This is often complicated, and as with all custody issues, we recommend that you talk to a lawyer about this. For more information on getting a custody order transferred to another state, see Changing a final custody order. For legal advice, go to VT FInding a Lawyer. You can also write to our Email Hotline for more information.
