Taking Child Out of State / Move-Away Custody

Out of State Child Custody – Before a parent with a custody-sharing agreement can move out-of-state with his or her child, the move away must be approved by the court. A number of factors are considered, including:

  • The reason for the move;
  • The distance away from the other parent;
  • The impact on the child;
  • The relationship between the parents; and, the parents’ ability to coparent.
