What Are the Custodial Parent's rights?
Some people believe the custodial parent can leave whenever they want. The courts do not allow this, however, as it is often not in the best interests of the child. Before a custodial parent can move, they must be able to prove that their is a valid reason for the move and that it does not hurt the child in any way.
Some common reasons for a relocation include:
- A new employment or job opportunity
- Limited medical treatment
- Personal reasons, such as family or community
- Educational opportunities for the child
- Financial situation and living environment
Whether you are the custodial or non-custodial parent, you need a seasoned family lawyer to guide you through this process. At the Law Offices of H. William Edgar, we strive to ensure our clients' voices are heard and their best interests safeguarded.
What Factors Does the Court Examine?
The court will look at several different factors during a move away or relocation case. Most importantly, they will be determining whether the move is in the best interests of the child. This includes everything from the emotional damage the move could have to the financial and educational benefits.
Some of the factors the court will examine include the following:
- The impact the move away would have on the non-custodial parent relationship
- Whether any detriment or harm would be caused to the child by moving / staying
- Whether the custodial parent is seeking to move in order to cut off the other parent
- Whether the child's best interests will be upheld through the move (such as better schooling)
- Whether the potential detriment to the child is enough justification to prevent the move away
Parents have rights. No matter your situation, whether you are seeking to relocate or prevent your child from being moved far away from you, our firm is ready to help you during this time.
