When A Parent Wants To Move Away After A Divorce

Following a divorce, moving with your children can be much more complicated than loading up the car and driving away. Maybe the other parent has primary custody and is seeking to move far away from your location. Whether you are the one moving or staying, you want to do what is best for your children while still allowing them to maintain their relationship with you and their other parent.
