Relocation and Move-Aways.

Understanding Parental Relocation in Maryland

Understanding Parental Relocation...
In parental relocation cases, like most other types of family law matter,s there are genuine opposing interests. In parental relocation (also known as "move-away" cases), the parent who has custody of the children wants to relocate to another city or state. Usually, it is for a job.

This, of course, affects the rights of the parent who does not have custody yet wants the ability to see their children regularly. Depending on where the custodial parent wants to move, the noncustodial parent may rarely get to see the children.

Child custody and visitation may already have been resolved in the settlement agreement or court order. But that does not mean it cannot change. The trick is in balancing the opposing interests of the parties.
