When a couple with children gets divorced, the court will generally award custody to one or both parents via court order. Assuming that both parents are stable and equipped to do so, the court will do whatever it can to ensure that both parents are involved in the child's life. But what happens when a custodial parent wants to relocate and take the children with them? The answer depends on the circumstances surrounding the move.
If you are getting a divorce, you already know how difficult the process can be. However, for divorcing couples with children, there can be even more challenges. For instance, divorcing parents will often have to decide where the child will live and determine who will make the decisions relating to the child's upbringing. Divorce courts are solely focused on making child custody decisions in the best interest of the child.
