What Happens if Your Ex Wants to Move with the Children?
You and your ex-partner share custody of your children, but now she (or he) drops a bombshell. She just got a new job in New York, or maybe she wants to move back to Wisconsin to be closer to her family. Either way, she is moving thousands of miles away…and she wants to take the kids.
What are your options?
Even just a decade ago, judges were much more likely to allow women to move away with children, leaving a father in an impossible situation. These days, however, judges have begun demanding that parents provide compelling reasons before they agree to allow children to move, especially in cases of joint custody.
If you want to keep your children close, the first thing you’ll want to do is talk to your ex and see if there is any way you can work out an agreement out of court. If that doesn’t work, all is not lost! You will need to fight in court and convince a judge that keeping the children here is in their best interest.
