California state law requires parents who share custody to inform the court if they plan to relocate with their child. The court will review the move and the reasons behind it to determine what is “best for the child’s interests.” They have the authority to approve or deny the move. Whether you are a parent who wants to relocate with your child or a parent who wants to prevent their child from being moved, the board certified family law specialist at Westover Law Group can help. We specialize in difficult custody issues.
The reasons for wanting to relocate your child will be one of the main determinates for approval. The parent wanting to move with their child must show that it will be beneficial for the child, as well as the adult.
The custodial parent must prove to the court that the move will be good for their child. Subsequently, if the other parent has fears that the relocation will place with child in danger or harm them in anyway, they can bring these concerns to the court. The court will then decide if they will allow the relocation and what modifications must be made to the parenting plan.
