Parental Relocation

There may be occasions when one parent finds it necessary to relocate their principal residence more than 50 miles from their current residence. Parental Relocation may occur with the consent of the other parent or by an order from the Court. If there is no consent, a proper petition must be filed with the Court to request relocation. The Court can also allow or prohibit a relocation on a temporary basis under certain circumstances. At a final hearing the Court will evaluate specific factors, taking into consideration the proposed new residence, the time-sharing schedule if the relocation is allowed, as well as the objecting parent’s current involvement in the lives of the children.
