Sophie Jacobi-Parisi is a partner at Warshaw Burnstein, LLP and practices matrimonial and family law, representing people in matrimonial, custody and support matters. She joins Stacy Francis to discuss relocation issues and how you can resolve them.
- Relocation is not automatic; a father or mother does not have the right to take his/her child and move away from the other parent.
- If a parent does want to relocate, they should make their case as strong as possible: considering all the benefits that relocation may provide for the child, such as a nicer home or better extra-curricular programs at a better school.
- If one parent takes the child on an international trip and doesn’t bring the child back, the other parent can file a Hague case in the child’s home state or country in order to bring jurisdiction back to their country.
- It is important to learn about your options. Generally, marriages can survive relocation, and divorce may not always be the answer.
