Indiana Code 31-17-2.2-1. Notice of intent to move residence; modifying orders; attorney's fees

Sec. 1. (a) A relocating individual must file a notice of the intent to move with the clerk of the court that:
        (1) issued the custody order or parenting time order; or
        (2) if subdivision (1) does not apply, has jurisdiction over the legal proceedings concerning the custody of or parenting time with a child;
and send a copy of the notice to any nonrelocating individual.
    (b) Upon motion of a party, the court shall set the matter for a hearing to review and modify, if appropriate, a custody order, parenting time order, grandparent visitation order, or child support order. The court shall take into account the following in determining whether to modify a custody order, parenting time order, grandparent visitation order, or child support order:
        (1) The distance involved in the proposed change of residence.
        (2) The hardship and expense involved for the nonrelocating individual to exercise parenting time or grandparent visitation.
        (3) The feasibility of preserving the relationship between the nonrelocating individual and the child through suitable parenting time and grandparent visitation arrangements, including consideration of the financial circumstances of the parties.
        (4) Whether there is an established pattern of conduct by the relocating individual, including actions by the relocating individual to either promote or thwart a nonrelocating individual's contact with the child.
        (5) The reasons provided by the:
            (A) relocating individual for seeking relocation; and
            (B) nonrelocating parent for opposing the relocation of the child.
        (6) Other factors affecting the best interest of the child.
