Board Certified Family Law Specialist Matt Arnold answers the question: “What are my custody rights if the other parent moves?”
Parenting following a divorce can be complicated. While both parents may share legal custody of their children, they usually live primarily with one parent. The non-custodial parent usually has visitation with their children on a regular basis. Most often, children live relatively close to both parents, so visitation is not an issue. However, what happens when a parent with primary residential custody wants to move away? There are many factors that can come up when a parent wants to move with a child. A knowledgeable family law attorney will assist you and provide guidance for handling a move with a child following divorce.
