It is not uncommon after a divorce for a custodial parent to move to a new location to seek employment, move closer to immediate family or pursue a fresh start in a new location. Such a move is often contested by the noncustodial parent, whose parenting time (visitation) rights are adversely affected.
If you are a custodial parent who wishes to move, you will likely have to obtain the approval of your former spouse or prior court approval. If you move in violation of the terms of a custody order, you could put your custody rights in significant jeopardy. If you are a noncustodial parent who wishes to oppose a relocation, you need an experienced family law attorney who can ensure the protection of your rights.
For parents who are involved in a parental relocation dispute, it is critical that you consult with an experienced family law attorney. Relocation decisions are typically final and difficult to reverse. Whether you want to move with your child or want to keep your child close to you, carefully choosing an attorney is vital.
