Move Away Orders

Relocating with Children Following a Separation or Divorce

California laws regarding the rights of parents to move with a child or to oppose the relocation of a child are complex and contain a number of factors that must be considered. Does one parent have sole custody or do both parents have a significant custodial relationship with the child? Does the existing court order grant considerable visitation rights to the non-custodial parent that would be infringed upon by a move? Is a move in the best interests of the child? These and other factors should be considered and discussed with an attorney before relocating children a significant distance from their current residence.
