One of the most common reasons for needing to modify a court judgment is the need to move outside of a given geographic area. In order to relocate legally, however, a parent must obtain approval from the court. The court may grant approval if the relocating parent has a legitimate need, including moving for a vocation or job, military service, or another marriage.
In all cases, the court will first and foremost consider the best needs of a child when making any determination; if the move substantially impacts the healthy ongoing relationship with one parent, the relocation may be denied.
If you and your loved ones are working through any relocation issue, a skilled lawyer can help you make the strongest possible case to obtain or defend against relocation.
