25-4A-19. Request for hearing on relocation--Presumption of consent--Best interests of child

At the request of the nonrelocating parent, made within thirty days of the notice of relocation, the court shall hold a hearing on the relocation. If no request for hearing is made within thirty days of notice, the relocation is presumed to be consented to by the nonrelocating parent. If an objection to the relocation is filed, the court shall consider the traditional best interest of the child factors when determining a proposed relocation that would result in a substantial alteration to the existing parenting time arrangement.
