Child Custody and Relocation

Custody fights with children can be long and arduous. Unfortunately, once an agreement is made, it is often important to alter it quickly. This is particularly true for divorced couples who must move. Each state has its own definition of “relocation.” It is known as a move of more than 50 miles or out of state.Learn more by visiting [child custody attorney scottsdale az] 

When deciding on custody of a child after a move, the best interests of the child are paramount. This entails taking into account each parent’s living condition. A parent’s willingness and duty to care for their child is important. Other considerations to consider include the location of your new home, schools, churches, and relationships with family and friends in the area.

The reason for the relocation will be considered. Moving for a new career or better schools would be viewed more favourably than relocating due to the loss of a job.

When children grow older, their views will be valued more and more. If a child spends time with both parents in the same city and one of them wishes to move, the child would definitely have strong feelings on whether or not to stay and spend the majority of their time with the other parent.

Kidnapping is a crime that is often related to the removal of a parent. Those with child custody agreements are responsible for notifying the other parent of their transfer. Failure to notify the other parent will lead to a criminal charge, and it will have a negative effect on that parent when a new agreement is made.

The agreement will determine how much time each parent will spend with the other. Because of the gap, one parent would most likely be granted visitation rights. For example, the non-custodial parent will be given two weeks with the child twice a year. It’s also likely that phone calls and video chats would be included in the deal.
