What Factors Does the Court Consider in Move-Away Cases?

The goal of the court is to come to a decision that is in the best interests of the child. There are a number of factors that the court will consider to achieve this end, including, but not limited to:

  • The child’s relationship with both parents
  • The child’s age
  • The child’s health and educational needs
  • The distance of the move
  • The relationship between the parents
  • The reasons for the move
  • The child’s preference, if mature enough to make an informed decision

Every situation is unique, and there are no clear-cut rules when it comes to the court’s decision in these matters. Ultimately, the court’s goal is to create an arrangement that will allow the child to enjoy a continuing relationship with both of their parents, no matter how much distance is between them.
