Some Things Divorcees Can Expect When Relocating

After tasting the “happily ever after” you come to realize that there is not an “after” and “happily” is only a momentary experience. It’s very hard for couples with children who may feel they are being selfish when filing for divorce. And for those parents who wish to relocate, the battle of the worlds just begun! In the midst of all this chaos, there is only one advocate that fights for your rights and protects your family interests. Fort Lauderdale custody relocation lawyer Stephanie G. Morrow can help your turbulent divorce reach safe shores.

Some things you can expect

Some things that could happen after packing your bags and relocating with your children:

  • You may end up in court seeking resolution.
  • The relocation will definitely impact your children. Child custody and relocation laws are very complex therefore you must ask your Fort Lauderdale custody relocation lawyer before making this difficult decision. Your attorney will help you decide if relocation is right for you and your family.
  • The well-being of the child is generally considered in family court so if you are trying to improve your child’s quality of life, the court may consider it when making a ruling.
  • Be prepared for a child custody battle. The non-custodial parent generally likes to contest the relocation, which means you will have to prove that the child’s quality of life will be significantly improving, even though the non-custodial parent is far.
  • The court and your family may question your motives. They may even claim that you are acting vengeful. It’s important you are sure about your decision. Remember you may still be emotional about the whole separation and divorce process. It may not be the best time to relocate.
  • You may feel guilty for keeping your child away from your ex. You may also have a weaker support system.

Preparing for relocation

Relocations aren’t simple. Like everything else in life, you must prepare in advance. If you and your ex-spouse have not come to an agreement about these issues, you should ask your attorney about ways to ease the situation. The first step is asking yourself whether the move is in the best interests of your children. Gather as much evidence as you can and try to persuade the judge.

You can show evidence about your new salary and benefits. Perhaps you are moving in with family in order to save on living expenses. You can also show that to the judge and explain how these savings can help support the family. If you are planning to get married, you need to have solid reasons why this marriage is going to help improve your children’s lives such as improved finances, a better home, more support, etc. Also, if you don’t have family at your current location but a better support system will be available at your new place, you can tell the judge how your family will be assisting and supporting you. You can also show evidence of your child’s close relationship with your family.
