As a Buffalo Child Custody Lawyer , when one parent comes to me and wants to move to a different state – or just a different part of New York – I tell them that they need one of two things.
- The parent with whom the child does not live must consent, or the court must grant permission.
- One parent can’t simply move to another state – or another part of the state – when the other parent has visitation with the child and is involved with the child’s life.
- If a parent wants to apply for relocation, it is important to speak with a Buffalo attorney and carefully review all the factors the court will consider.
- If one parent just leaves the area, serious consequences will descend upon that parent after the move.
