Moving to another state with a child

If you are in the middle of a contentious divorce or recently separated from your child’s other parent, you may be facing a variety of challenges. However, those which involve the custody of your child can be particularly emotional and it is important for you to work toward an outcome that serves his or her best interests. At Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, LLP, we are very familiar with the hardships that children may encounter when their parents are struggling with legal issues related to child custody and other aspects of family law in Boston, and throughout Massachusetts.

When it comes to parental relocation, there are a number of matters you may have to consider. For example, you could be a child’s custodial parent and have concerns about your ability to move with him or her. On the other hand, you may be a non-custodial parent and be worried about losing the ability to spend time with your child. Either way, it is pivotal for you to focus on protecting the best interests of your child.

Regardless of the unique details of your circumstances, it is important to understand how the laws in Massachusetts affect a custodial parent’s ability to relocate with a minor child. With regard to relocation, a parent who has sole physical custody may secure a different outcome than a parent who has joint physical custody.
