Relocation With a Child in New York

When parents get divorced, they are often faced with the difficult reality of sharing custody of their child. There are also difficult situations that arise regarding the custodial parent wishing to move out of New York State with the child. Of course, this can be devastating information for the noncustodial parent to learn. When relocation is a contested matter, it may have to be resolved by a judge in the New York State family court. If relocation ends up in court, the custodial parent who wishes to move has the responsibility of proving that relocation is necessary.

Of course, the court will always rule in the best interests of the child. In order to determine whether the move should be granted, the court will have to take a number of different factors into consideration. Some of these factors can include how the move will impact the following:

  • The reason that the parent wishes to relocate
  • The reason that the other parent contests the relocation
  • The relationship between the child and each parent
  • The relationship between the child and their extended family
  • The quality of life for the custodial parent and the child
  • The child’s social and academic life

If you are facing matters of relocation, whether you wish to move or you are opposed to a move, contact or firm today.
