Relocation or taking a child overseas
When determining whether a child should be allowed to relocate to another State/country, the Court must consider whether it is “reasonably practicable” for the child to be able to spend equal time or significant time with the non-custodial parent.
Convincing a Court to allow you to relocate is often difficult if the other parent has been actively involved in the child’s life prior to and since separation. Ultimately, the Court is bound by what it considers to be in the child’s best interests.
