When you are divorced, you sometimes come across difficult situations that other families may not face. For instance, if you're given the opportunity to take a good job in another state but have a child in your custody, will you be able to move away from your son or daughter's father or mother? Is it fair to your ex or child to do so?
Child relocations are some of the most difficult and contentious issues family law courts see. A non-custodial parent could see it as an effort to block them from seeing his or her children, while the custodial parent may simply want to move forward with his or her life separate from his or her ex-spouse.
