A residential custodian may want to move out of New Jersey after he or she is divorced. A new job opportunity may require relocation or a parent may want to live closer to his or her immediate family while raising the children.

Considerations For Moving Children Out Of State

In order to make an informed decision, the Court may consider:

  • The reason for the move

  • The nonmoving parent's involvement in the child's life
  • The ability to make arrangements for continued parenting time

The standards for relocating with a child are constantly evolving. Laurie A. Bernstein Esq. stays up-to-date on the latest cases and trends, so that she can provide relevant, straightforward advice to her clients. She will go to battle for her clients, fighting to protect their rights and help them achieve their goals.
