When the child of a divorced family is relocated, it potentially upsets many of the child custody and visitation terms that were decided during the divorce. Because of this, the custodial parent seeking relocation must receive approval from their co-parent and the court before moving. Initially, they will have to seek written approval from their co-parent.
If the co-parent does not agree with the relocation (and does not provide written approval), then the matter must be brought to court. A judge will review each parent's arguments and consider the best interests of the child.
Just some of the considerations in a relocation dispute include:
The court will also assess whether both parents are willing to adhere to a new custody/visitation arrangement if the relocation were to be approved. It's critical in these cases that each parent's reasoning for or against the relocation is vividly presented to the court. Our firm knows what it takes to put forth a thorough argument and can ensure the effects of any potential relocation are compellingly put forth.
