Often, after a separation or divorce, parents decide to move because they can no longer to afford to live in the same city, for a new job opportunity, or so they can be closer to extended family for financial or emotional support. Whatever the reason, when a parent wants to move, difficult decisions have to be made regarding where the children will live and how the other parent will maintain a relationship with them.
Sometimes, divorced or separated parents can agree on where their children should reside and what the visitation arrangements will be. Many times, however, these situations are emotionally and logistically difficult, and parents can’t agree. It will then be up to a court to decide.
The move-away laws are complicated and confusing, and there are many factors involved in the outcome.
