Move-Away Requests

Well-Versed in the Move-Away Process

Co-parenting after a divorce can be challenging on its own, but when you or the other parent of your child wants to move away, it can complicate your custody order and visitation schedule. Because the courts must have your child’s best interests in mind, their rulings will ensure that your child will not be negatively affected by a move-away order or a custody decision. Their decision to grant the request will rest on a number of factors. When you’re facing a move-away request, a lawyer can tell you more about the legal nuances of your case.

Before they approve your move-away request, the courts may ask questions like:

  • Why are you moving away?
  • Will the move be beneficial or detrimental to the child(ren)?
  • How have circumstances changed since the original order was made?
  • How much time did each of you spend with your child?

Whether you or the other parent is moving because of a job opportunity, a military transfer, or a desire to live closer to family, the court will always prioritize your child. That may seem like a simple principle, but move-away cases can be very difficult and involved. Our diligent family law attorneys can navigate these complex legal issues on your behalf.
