We believe that each relocation request must be considered on its own merits with due consideration of all the relevant facts and circumstances and with predominant emphasis being placed on what outcome is most likely to serve the bests interests of the child.

Under what circumstances may a custodial parent relocate together with a child?

– Economic reasons
– Health reasons
– Remarriage
