We live in a mobile society. Career/employment decisions and/or family or financial needs may lead to a decision to relocate. Parents who share custody of their children may face domestic or international move-away issues if these situations arise. Whether you are the parent that would be moving or the parent that will be remaining, your child(ren)’s best interests will need to be considered and addressed. If you cannot agree with the other parent on the best course of action under these particular circumstances, the court’s assistance will be needed.
The court will need to make a decicion on whether it is better for the child(ren) to move with the requesting parent or for custody to be changed to the parent remaining in California. There are numerous challenges in litigating domestic/international move-away cases.
