If you and your ex spouse have children together and one of you wants to move away from the area after the divorce, a move-away order will first have to be granted by the court.
You or your ex spouse may need to move out of the area for work, get a new job, or simply want to move closer to family members who can help you take care of your children. These seemingly simple events can become very complicated family law matters. It is highly recommended that you use an attorney like Steven A. Leff to manage the case.
Like all Family Law cases involving children, the court will first focus on what is in the best interest of the children. The court will examine and consider what the status quo, or existing pattern of life has been like and make every attempt to accommodate the best interest of your children.
