What Happens When You Get That Big Job Offer Across State Lines
Ideally, a child should have access to both parents, with each playing a prominent role in his or her development and daily life.
This becomes more difficult in cases of divorce, where both parents maintain separate residences and share custody and visitation. The situation is further complicated when one parent moves out of state--say to take a new job or remarry--putting significant geographical distance between the two households.
If you’re considering relocating you should ask yourself some serious questions, such as...
- Do you have a rational reason for relocating your family?
- Is the other parent objecting? Is your reason for leaving out of your control?
- Do you need/have permission from the court? Have you filed a Notice with the court?
- Or are you the parent who wants to contest relocation?
These are just a few of the questions we need to discuss if relocation is on your mind. This is a complex issue and usually cannot be solved easily.
