Resignation Letter Due to Family Relocation | Sample

Updated on: April 11, 2022

Apart from bringing with it the usual troubles of packing and moving during relocation, it leaves uncertainty – especially where our work is concerned.

There is work to wrap up and things to pack and finally, resignation letters to write.

Whether it is you, your spouse or the rest of your family that has decided to move (and if you have decided to move with them), writing a resignation letter is in order.

What does one put in a letter to resign because of a family relocation?

The truth, of course!

Yes, the truth, but what does one actually write?

You will first need to see what your company rules regarding resignation are. Then you need to craft a letter that is factual, polite, and to the point.

While you need to put in some niceties, there really is no need for long, emotional outbursts in your resignation letter. You can leave the tears for when you bid farewell to everyone in person.

Address your letter to your immediate supervisor and make sure that you thank them for training you and giving you an opportunity to excel.

Ms. Hannah Mason
General Manager
Interstate Investments
887 14th Street
New York, NY 11986

Dear Ms. Mason:

It is with great regret that I am informing you of my decision to resign from my position as Account Officer for Interstate Investments. As per my employment agreement, I am liable to provide a two weeks notice of my intent to leave. Please note that November 16 will be my last day at work.

My family is relocating to Baltimore, MD, in December, and I have no choice but to move with them. It was a spur-of-the-moment decision – my husband has been offered a position that he cannot refuse, and I believe that I do not have a choice but to support him at this time. I realize that I have 150 accounts that need to be handed over to someone before I leave, so I would appreciate it if you would let me know who you would like me to train in my place as soon as possible.

Interstate Investment has been the place where I learned everything about the commodities business, and I am very grateful for this opportunity. From the day I joined, I have learned something new every day – everyone isn’t as lucky as I have been.

Thank you for your continuous guidance and support during my tenure at Interstate Investment.
