California Move-Away Orders
In determining whether or not to grant a relocation order, the court will
examine a number of factors. For example, the judge will determine if
the terms contained in the first custody order have changed, or if your
circumstances are more or less the same now as they were then.
Other questions may include:
- Why is the parent planning to move? Is the relocation an attempt to avoid
the child's contact with his or her other parent?
- How much time does the child spend with each of his or her parents?
- Is the child stable in the current custody setting?
- How far is the move?
- How old is the child?
- What are the child's wishes in this circumstance? Does he or she have
- Are the parents able to communicate with one another? Are they on courteous
terms and able to put aside their own interests for the benefit of the child?

court could examine before deciding whether or not to grant a relocation
order. An attorney from our firm can explain this legal process in depth
