Frequently, following a divorce or a paternity case, a parent with majority time sharing wants to relocate. Legally speaking, relocation refers to moving a child’s residence more than 50 miles from the existing residence at the time of the order of custody. It is important to realize that there are separate statutes that govern relocation and various separate factors the court uses to evaluate relocation requests (as opposed to time sharing agreements).
Relocation issues are taken very seriously by the court and require the correct technical language when organizing a pleading. Failure to properly prepare the pleading can result in losing custodial rights of a child. Due to the high stakes and technical needs in these issues, it is absolutely critical to partner with a skilled lawyer.
