Court Intervention or Approval for Parental Relocation in the Bronx
The predominant emphasis in relocation cases is the best interests of the child. Although the parents' rights are important factors that must be considered by the courts, the child's interests are almost always given the greatest weight. The court may allow the relocation and grant visitation to the non-custodial parent that allows for a positive, nurturing relationship with the child. If the child's ties to the non-custodial parent and current community are strong, however, the court may transfer child custody to the non-custodial parent.
In deciding whether to allow relocation, the court will look at a number of factors, including the reasons for seeking or opposing the move, the quality of the child's relationship with each of the parents, the impact the move will have on extended family relationships, and the feasibility of preserving a relationship between the child and the non-custodial parent. As a seasoned divorce attorney, I can assist you with your relocation matter.
