Deciding Factors In Move-Aways

There are many different deciding factors in a move-away case, with the most important factor being "the best interests of the child."

Other deciding factors include:

  • Relationships that the child has developed with others.
  • Age of the child (depending on the age of the child, his or her wishes may be considered).
  • Distance and reasons for the move.
  • Ability for the child to continue to build a relationship with the other parent through frequent and continuous communication.
  • Current custody arrangements.
