Child Custody & Relocation
Do you plan to relocate?
Parents with minor children that intend to divorce will need to work out a parenting plan as part of their settlement. A parenting plan contains the duties and responsibilities of each parent in regards to the child, as well as agreements regarding custody and visitation. Once the divorce is finalized, any changes to the plan will need to be approved by the court. This includes both custodial and non-custodial parental relocation. The court will only approve a relocation if it is in the best interests of the child, and will look at factors such as:
- The impact the move will have on the child's relationship with the other parent
- How the move will affect the child's schooling
- Whether or not the child wants to move
