Determining Contested Relocation
There is no presumption in favor of or against a request to relocate with a child when the relocation will “materially affect” the current time-sharing, access and contact with the other parent or other persons entitled to contact and access.
The Court will evaluate several factors when reaching a decision on contested relocation of a child.
The second factor the Court is to evaluate in reaching its decision is:
– The child’s age and developmental stage, the child’s needs, and the impact relocation will have on the child’s physical, mental, and emotional development, taking into consideration any special needs of the child.
