Passaic County Relocation and Removal Lawyers

(n.j.s.a. 9:2-2) Custody of Children of Divorced or Separated Parents

If parents are separated, (regardless of whether there is a divorce or if they were every married) and one parent wants to move out of state, that parent must either get consent of the other parent or file a motion with the Superior Court. People may wish to move for a number of reasons including employment, remarriage, cheaper standard of living or to be closer to other family members.

New Jersey Parental Relocation Laws

Such a motion can be a huge uphill battle. When one parent moves out of state, the other loses close physical contact with the child. As a result, our Passaic County parental relocation attorneys know how to set up your motion to get the best possible result. Aggressive motions that hit hard early on often increase the chances of the right result. The court will consider a number of factors and our tough, smart lawyers will work hard to show that each and every one is in your favor.

By staying up to date on the latest cases and trends in New Jersey family law and by constantly honing our skills in this area, our Passaic County Relocation and Removal Lawyers will fight for you with your removal case regardless of what side you are on. We can help you if you or the other parent is seeking to move out of state, out of the country or even the other side of New Jersey.

Some of the court considerations for granting relocation;

  • The reasons a custodial parent wants to move.
  • The reasons the non-custodial parent wants the child to remain in New Jersey.
  • The resources such as education, health, and recreation available to the child in each location.
  • The effect of the move on extended family relationships here and in the other location.
  • Whether the non-custodial parent has the ability to relocate.
  • The preference of the child, if the child is at least 12 years old.
