Parents seek to move to a far-away location for many reasons, such as a job opportunity, to escape domestic violence, or to care for a family member who is ill. Whether you seek to move away or you are trying to prevent the custodial parent from moving away, a court order will likely be needed and a skilled and experienced family law attorney can have a tremendous impact on the result.
Parent seeking to move away or relocate
The court’s primary concern is, “What is in the best interest of the child?” Courts will consider many factors when determining whether to allow a custodial parent to move away.
Among them are:
• Child’s age and nature of relationship with each parent
• Distance of the move
• Parent’s reason for the move
• Current child custody arrangement
• What the child wants (for older children)
