Moving Away and Changing Custody
If a final custody order has been entered and a non-custodial parent would like to move to a different state and take a minor child with him or her, the moving parent must prove several items. The moving parent must first prove that there has been a change in circumstances since the last custody order was entered. The change of circumstances must be such that it would be essential or expedient for the welfare of the child that there be a change in custody. In addition, the moving parent must show that changing physical custody would not detrimentally affect the minor child’s interest in continuity and stability. The final thing the parent must prove is that relocating the child is in the child’s best interest.
