Relocation in New York

Parents looking to relocate with their child must seek permission from the court. The co-parent will be officially notified and a hearing will be set for a judge to assess the circumstances of the family. In many ways, a relocation hearing is much like a child custody hearing, where the child's best interests are considered the highest priority.

Some of the factors to be discussed in a relocation hearing include:

  • How would the move limit the child's access to the non-custodial parent?
  • What resources would the child have to maintain a relationship with the custodial parent?
  • How would the move limit the child's access to extended family?
  • How would the move disrupt the child's education and/or health?
  • What are the reasons for the move?
  • What is the distance of the relocation?
  • How would the move benefit the child?

Arevalo Law, PLLC can help you voice your concerns during this process and ensure that your family's circumstances are thoroughly put forth before the court. For more information about how our firm can help you, contact Attorney Belinda Arevalo today.
