All child custody matters are difficult. Especially if custody is contested and even more so if it involves a parent relocating far away from the other parent (for whatever reason).
Without the appropriate advice and recommendations, one “wrong” decision will not only cost you thousands and thousands of dollars in legal fees (not only your own, but possibly the other side’s fees if you are the one making the “wrong” decision), but can also cost you custody of your child.
It is everyone’s constitutional right to travel – however – that does not mean it is your right to have the child move with you (even if you are the primary caregiver of the child). The Court recognizes that the primary caregiver, also known as the custodial parent may take a child out of the country notwithstanding resulting restrictions to the noncustodial parent’s visitation rights, when the move is in the child’s best interests.
