Relocation & Move-Aways

Parental Relocation

In parental relocation cases, like most other types of family law matters, there are natural opposing interests. In parental relocation (also known as "move-away" cases), the parent who has custody of the children wants to relocate to another city or state. Usually it's for a job.

This, of course, affects the rights of the parent who does not have custody, yet wants to be able to see his or her children on a regular basis. Depending on where the custodial parent wants to move, the noncustodial parent may rarely get to see the children.

Child custody and visitation may already have been resolved in the settlement agreement or court order. But that doesn't mean it can't change. The trick is in balancing the opposing interests of the parties.
