Americans live in a mobile society. We are accustomed to moving for a better job, to be near aging parents, or to get our children into a better school district. Most people think nothing of it. However, New Jersey law requires that both parents — either married, divorced, or unmarried — consent to the removal of the child from the state. When they cannot agree, the family court becomes involved in developing a relocation agreement.
Jeffrey M. Bloom represents either parent in relocation matters. We act for parents who wish to move away from the area and for parents who oppose the relocation of their ex-spouse and children. In either case, we advise and counsel clients on the best interests of their children in parental relocation cases. For more information about New Jersey law related to parental relocation, contact our lawyer, Jeffrey M. Bloom. We take cases in Hudson County, Bergen County and throughout northern New Jersey and West New York.
The goal of New Jersey law on relocation is to preserve the rights of noncustodial parents, many of whom may no longer be able to be involved in the lives of his or her children should a relocation take place. The burden of proof is on the relocating parent to demonstrate why a move-away should be allowed.
