A move away case arises when one parent wants to relocate anywhere from outside of the county where the child currently resides, to out of the state, or out of the country. And these cases are some of the most difficult family law cases that ever come into our office, because sometimes there’s really no best scenario. One parent is going to be far away from the other. And so, a move away case is when you either come to an agreement about a new custody schedule or put the matter in front of a judge to determine whether the child will remain with one parent as the primary custodian, or if the child will move away with the other parent as the primary caretaker of the child, and what the visitation schedule will subsequently look like once that parent has relocated.
