KITCHENER FAMILY LAW LAWYERS WITH OVER 40 YEARS OF FIRM EXPERIENCE ASSISTING CLIENTS WITH ISSUES AFFECTING MOBILITY AND RELOCATION OF CHILDREN
What happens when one parent wishes to relocate to a new area with the children? This area of family law is one of the most complex areas in any case, especially when the proposed relocation will inevitably affect the access rights of the non-relocating parent. A parent may relocate with the children so long as the other parent’s access can continue. Disputes frequently occur when the proposed distance of relocation negatively affects the other parent’s ability to exercise access.
What steps should you take to block or dispute the proposed relocation?
Success in relocating away from a municipality where one parent resides to another is often very difficult to attain. The court reviews several factors in determining whether to allow a parent to relocate, including the distance of the proposed move, the reason for the move, and the impact that the move may have on the children’s relationship with the non-moving parent in applying the guiding principle of the best interests of the child.
