Relocating With A Child In Ohio
When a custodial parent decides to relocate, they must inform the same court that handled their divorce of their intentions to move. This gives notice to both the court and the co-parent who have any concerns about the proposed relocation. If there are objections, a hearing will be set for both parents to attend. There, each parent can make their case for or against the relocation.
Key factors the court will consider in a relocation hearing include:
- Reasoning - what are the reasons for the move? Will the move benefit the child?
- Parenting time - will relocation affect the child's time with both parents?
- Distances - how far away will the new residence be?
- Other various "best interests" concerns for the child
As you can see, many of the same factors that are parsed during custody matters must again be re-examined at a relocation hearing. This is why, whether you are a custodial or non-custodial parent, it is critical that you have proven representation by your side that can compellingly put forth your needs and concerns to the judge. Our Columbus lawyers can guide you through each step.
