Monmouth County, NJ Relocation Lawyer

Have you and your former spouse divorced and are now sharing custody of your children? Whether it includes parental rights or visitation rights, you may be limited in how far you are able to move with your child. You may want to consider the possibility of relocating your family to another area either during your divorce or after dissolution of your marriage. However there are some legal obstacles in a situation like this that will be placed by the court.

Relocating After a Divorce

There are many valid reasons that arise for the need to relocate. You may have been offered a great job out of state and do not want to be limited by where you can live. You may also believe a move is the best choice for your child, providing them with a better school system, a fresh start or by moving closer to other family members after the difficult situation of ending your marriage. If the court believes there is valid reason for the move to be made and that it is in the best interests of the child, they may legally allow for you to move long distance.

On the other end of the spectrum, you may be a parent that wants to avoid having your child moved away from you. If they are taken out of state it can greatly reduce the amount of time you are able to spend with them and the chance to continually be a part of their life. There may be reasons that you find it is in the best interests of your child for the move to not take place. In some cases one of the parents may want to prevent the other from moving if it does without the child. Having the other parent move farther away can mean that one of them shoulders the responsibility of the child alone for the most part, taking on additional time and resources to care for them as the sole parent in some ways.
