Senate requires parents to get ex's OK to move

PHOENIX (AP) -

Parents with custody of their children wishing to move will have to notify the other parent to give them a chance to object under a bill approved by the Arizona Senate Monday.

Current law only requires notice for moves out of Arizona or more than 100 miles.

Republican Sen. Nancy Barto's bill also requires parents to give a reason and file a copy with the court. If the noncustodial parent objects the custodial parent must seek a court order.

Barto said bill gives non-custodial parents more say in their child's upbringing.

Democrats say it puts domestic violence victims at risk and could prevent a single parent from buying a house because it requires a 60-day notice.

The bill passed on a 17-12 party-line vote and now goes to the House.
