Question:

Can I move with the children?

Answer:

In general, any application for relocation of children would require the court to approve that or the consent of the children’s parent. That can be a difficult prospect. However, in New Jersey, that is governed by what is called the best interest of the children.Child Custody RelocationYou would have to establish that it is, in fact, in the best interest of your child or children to go with you to another jurisdiction. That could be established through employment opportunities, familial support, the abuse of a spouse or a former spouse here in New Jersey that you need to get yourself and the children away from, but generally speaking, that is something that can be done.
