Relocation with children after divorce can be complex

Divorce itself can be difficult and complicated, and this is typically made more so when children are involved. Parents may work out custody agreements independent of the court, but if they cannot decide the court will step in. and make the decision for them. Once a custody agreement is established in New Jersey that is not necessarily the last word. While one parent may have primary or even full custody, there are implications if that parent needs or wishes to relocate. Potential issues with relocation are not necessarily limited to a move out of state.

Relocation can become an issue for child visitation

When parents decide to separate and ultimately to divorce in New Jersey the logistics of child care become paramount. The logistics can involve child support and custody, visitation and even transportation. Who will transport children to and from visitation sounds like it could be a straightforward conversation. Even if the parents agree to an arrangement that is spelled out in the final decree, relocation of one parent can have unforeseen ramifications on prior agreements.

Relocation can complicate a divorce when children are involved

Divorce in New Jersey can be a difficult, complex and time-consuming process. This can be amplified when there are children involved. The issue of relocation came up in a divorce proceeding in another state. The mother, who had been granted the majority of parenting time, wanted to relocate the children to another state.

How a court will rule on a relocation case

When parents end a relationship with someone they have a child with (whether it is a divorce or romantic break-up), moving away to start a new life is a common occurrence. For the parent that is potentially being left behind, this can lead to a bevy of hard feelings. After all, having a child taken from a parent’s life can be emotionally devastating. Not to mention that a parent’s legal rights may be violated as well.
