Reviewing reasons for relocating after divorce

On Behalf of | Jan 30, 2019 | Relocation |

Couples break up for countless reasons, and it is important to remember how the circumstances surrounding divorce vary from one case to another. Some couples have many kids together and struggle with custody matters, while others may be childless but could face divorce challenges due to their assets. If you have children, all sorts of legal matters may be on the table, from child support to custody. However, you may also be thinking about relocating, or your spouse may want to move with your child, in which case you will have to look into parental relocation issues.

Parents decide to relocate with their kids after a divorce for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes, a parent may want to move simply to find a fresh start in life. Perhaps they are tired of living in the same area for too long or they no longer feel comfortable in the community they used to live in. In other instances, a parent may relocate with their kids due to domestic violence, while some people move away after a divorce to pursue a career opportunity or live closer to their family members. There are many different reasons behind parental relocation, but it is essential for parents to make sure that no rights are being violated before the move.

Relocation can be stressful for anyone but can be especially tricky for someone who is dealing with divorce-related matters. If you are a custodial parent who is planning to move, or you feel that your child’s other parent is violating your rights, research these issues carefully.
