Dealing with Relocation
Dealing with a divorce or separation is emotionally difficult for everyone involved, especially children. When coming to a custody agreement, the first concern is always what is in the best interest of the children. It is the same when it comes to relocation proceedings. While the courts will consider the rights of the parents, they always put the needs and rights of the affected children first.
The courts consider many factors before allowing a relocation out of the area or state, including:
- The reasons for moving and relocating the child
- Whether or not the relocation will substantially improve or benefit the child’s life or the life of their custodial parent
- The financial, emotional, and educational impact the move will have on the child
- The existing relationships between the child and both of their parents
- Whether or not the relationship with the non-custodial parent can be maintained after the relocation
There are times when the relocation of the custodial parent away from the non-custodial parent is necessary and beneficial to the children in question. In some cases, parents can acknowledge and sign an agreement to the relocation without having to go to court. However, when the move is not agreed to by both parties, the relocation can be handled through the courts.
