Given the state of the economy, more and more parents are having to consider relocating. Some need to relocate for a better job. Others may desire to relocate to be closer to the financial and emotional support network that extended family can provide.
When a parent who has primary custody of a child wishes to relocate in such a way that it has an impact on the parental rights of the other parent the court may prevent relocation.
The court will look to serve the best interests of the child. Everything will be viewed through that lens. Whether you are seeking to relocate or you are opposing relocation, you need to be able to frame the facts of the case through the best interests of the child to be able to persuade the court of the validity of your position.
