Parental Relocation

Parental Relocation

Child custody is often the most difficult part of a divorce. Can you relocate? Can the children come with you? Does moving change your custody arrangement?

It depends. Relocations within New Jersey are usually negotiated and settled between both parties, or approved by the court. Leaving the state is where things start to get complicated.

Moving children out-of-state requires consent from the other parent, or a court order. There is no way around this requirement. Attempting to skirt custody law could have serious criminal consequences.

If you are trying to initiate or stop a move, we can help.

Parental relocation rules are constantly changing. Arons & Solomon stays ahead of the latest developments in state law, and adjusts our legal strategies accordingly.
