Relocating After Your Divorce Or Child Custody Order

Sometimes, the primary or custodial parent may desire to relocate with the children to another area of the county, state or country. Statutory provision controls the relocation of children and specific notice requirements must be followed in the relocation of children. A noncustodial parent may object to the relocation to prevent the children from moving. The approval of the court will be required if the relocation is contested. This area of family law is often hotly contested and emotionally charged. An understanding of both the law and the application of the facts as they apply to the law is essential for a successful resolution of any relocation case; whether you are the parent desiring to relocate the children or the parent objecting to the relocation of the children.
