Relocating to another State with Your Children after a Divorce

Relocating to another State with Your Children after a Divorce

Are you considering relocating to another state? It’s common for people to want to move for any number of reasons. You may have been offered a job promotion that requires you to relocate. You might want to move to be closer to your family or friends. Or, you might want to move for reasons related to cost-of-living or the climate. No matter the reason, the process of moving can be complicated if you are divorced with children.

If you share child custody with your ex-spouse, you may need permission from the court to move your children away from their other parent. The court will take several factors into consideration when deciding whether to approve an out-of-state move, including the following:

  • The specific reasons that one parent wants to move
  • The reasons the other parent is contesting the move
  • What is in the best interest of the children
  • Details of the revised/proposed visitation schedule

The desire to move to another state when there are children involved can be hindered by the children’s other parent. If you are thinking about relocating, make sure to seek legal advice at once.
