When a divorced or unmarried parent moves out of town, adjustments need to be made by everyone, especially the other parent and the children. The reason for the move may be a job, a relationship or a family need, or it may be a direct result of a recent divorce. The situation may involve the relocating mother or father wanting to bring the child or children along, or it may involve a parent moving without the children.
Invariably, moving children will mean a change in the amount of time they get to spend with one of the parents. This can create conflict between parents and difficulty for kids. Generally, a parent who wishes to move away must demonstrate that the move is in the child's or children's best interests. The moving parent may need to go to court to modify an existing child custody or visitation order.
