Relocating a child poses many complex issues for the Court to address. By moving a child out of state or even to another city will greatly impact the non-custodial parent’s rights to visitation and access with the child. As with all custody cases, the Court will use a “best interest” standard in deciding an issue of relocation. The Court will look at a number of factors including: the child’s attachment to each parent, the quality of life the child would have with the prospective relocation, the negative or positive impact on family relationships, economic necessity and education of the child to name a few.
Relocation cases require a skilled and effective legal counsel to advocate your side of a proposed relocation. For more information please contact Ross S. Gelber at 716-632-5919 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
