Parental Relocation and Move-Aways in Georgia
Moving children to another state with a parent requires the help of an attorney. Parental relocation cannot be done unless the custody agreement is officially modified. Verbal agreements are not upheld in the courtroom. In determining whether or not to approve a custody or visitation modification, the courts will look at several things, including:
- Reasons for requesting the move (job opportunity, etc.)
- Relationships the child has established at school, with friends and family
- Impact of the move on the child’s well-being
