Custody disputes in and of themselves are very difficult and very stressful for parties to go through. But what happens when one parent throws a wrench into the situation and decides to move to a different state, and specifically to relocate the child to a different state?
What happens if your co-parent moves to a different state
Don’t stress. There are certainly arrangements out there that will provide you as much time as possible to spend with your child or children in the event that your co-parent moves to a different state. Courts are very cognizant of the fact that it is very important for parties to share parenting time as equally as possible, at least under most circumstances.
What can you expect?
So when the co-parent moves to a different state, you can expect, for example, to have extended weekends. You can expect to have a larger chunk of time with your children during the summer. You & #39;ll be able to travel to that state to visit with your kids whenever your schedule allows. The court will be cognizant to make sure that there & #39;s not a ton of travel going on in the middle of the school year, but you will certainly get long weekends. You’ll also get to spend most of the long holidays with your children. There are definitely ways to spend time with your kids if your co parent decides to relocate. And keep in mind, Skype, FaceTime, and all of those video conferencing calls provide additional ways to stay connected.
