Child Relocation

When families break up, it is not uncommon for one parent to eventually want to move elsewhere, for a job or another reason. When children are involved, parental relocation can be particularly tricky. Whether you are just beginning the divorce process or already living separately, it is important for you to know your rights and those of the other parent.

At Townsend, Tomaio & Newmark, L.L.C., in Morristown, our custody and visitation attorneys help clients negotiate and litigate over parental relocation under the guidelines of New Jersey law. Contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our knowledgeable family law attorneys.

New Jersey Policies Regarding Parental Relocation

Due in part to the fact that many New Jersey residents frequently need to relocate in order to advance their careers, the courts of our state have been at the forefront of adapting our parental relocation laws to these circumstances.

If the courts are confident that parental relocation requests are not being made for the purpose of alienating the other spouse from his or her child, they will usually grant those requests, and they may make special arrangements for visitation.

Whether you are currently going through a divorce or you are already covered by a child custody and visitation order and concerned about parental relocation, you should talk to an experienced lawyer. If one party is talking about removal of the child from the state, you will particularly want sound legal advice.

Parental relocation standards are complex and always changing as attorneys and judges come up with new ideas about how to maintain parental relationships while allowing parents to move when necessary. We stay on top of the latest developments and are familiar with how these issues are addressed in each county.

Child Custody and In-State Parent Moves in New Jersey

In New Jersey, relocation within the state does not normally require court or parental approval. However, if you move far enough away, that could impact your ability to fulfill a parenting time arrangement, which may allow your spouse to obtain modification of the custody and visitation attorneys order.
