Thinking about relocating? As a single parent, there are many things you should think about before deciding to relocate.
Relocating is stressful enough as it is, but relocating as a single parent can really be difficult to deal with. That is why, in our last blog, our child support attorney in Hauppauge talked about a few things that single parents should consider before deciding to relocate. Keep reading to learn about more things to consider before deciding to move:
#4. Expect to have your move thoroughly investigated.
Moving as a single parent simply doesn’t look good, even if you are moving for purely innocent reasons. The court is likely to investigate your move from every possible angle to ensure that there are no unhealthy reasons motivating you to move your children. You should also expect to be criticized by friends and family about your move.
#5. Prepare to prove that your move will minimally impact your child.
If your ex-spouse is opposed to your move, you will need to prove that moving your child away from their non-custodial parent will either improve your child’s quality of life or at least minimally impact their quality of life.
#6. Know that a lose-lose situation is possible.
Even if your relocation is approved, prepare yourself for the emotional consequences of moving your child away from their other parent. It is not uncommon for parents to feel guilty about moving their children away.
