New Jersey Child Custody Lawyer on Moving to Another State with the Children Before Divorce
As an experienced New Jersey Child Custody Lawyer, I am often asked if a parent can move to another state with their children before they initiate the divorce action.
- It is usually not permissible for a parent to relocate to another state, taking the child or children with them.
- Permanent relocation to another state prior to divorce requires the other parent’s consent or a court order.
- Discuss your potential relocation with your attorney to be sure every potential factor that may affect your decision is thoroughly evaluated.
