On Behalf of | May 2, 2017 | Divorce |

When it comes to child custody matters after a divorce, it goes without saying that this can lead to a variety of questions and concerns.

For example, relocation can move to the forefront at some point. This is when a custodial parent is seeking to relocate along with a child or children. While this sounds simple enough, it will impact the other parent in a number of ways.

Furthermore, this decision can have an impact on the child or children, such as by:

— Changing the school that the child attends

— Removing the child from a situation in which they can regularly visit with the non-custodial parent
