Change of address form for children under 18

  • Print

For people under 18 years of age, the person or people who have parental responsibility for the child, and who the child lives with permanently, must sign the change of address form.

Who should sign and when?

If at the time you are moving...

  • both parents are registered as resident with the child and have joint parental responsibility and one moves out of the joint home with the child, both parents must sign the change of address form. 
  • the child is registered as resident with both parents, but only one has parental responsibility, it is sufficient for just the parent with parental responsibility to sign the change of address form.
  • the child is registered as resident with one of the parents who has joint parental responsibility, it is sufficient for this parent to sign the change of address form.
  • the child is registered as resident with one of the parents who has joint parental responsibility, and the parents have a dual domicile agreement for the child, both parents must sign the change of address form. 
  • the child is registered as resident with a parent who does not have parental responsibility, the parent who has parental responsibility must sign the change of address form.

As regards moving to a country outside the Nordic region, the rule is that a parent who has sole parental responsibility is free to move abroad with the child.  If on the other hand the parental responsibility is joint, the other parent must consent to the emigration by signing the change of address form.

How to register a change of address for your child

The easiest way to do this is if one of the parent submits an electronic moving notification only for the child, in addition to the other parent including the child on its own moving notification. This will be accepted as if it were a signature from the other parent.

Notifications of moving abroad cannot be submitted online.
