Do you want to move out of Massachusetts after your Divorce with your Child?
This type of Divorce issue is known as a Removal Case. Removal cases are some of the most complex, contentious situations that can arise after divorce — or between unmarried parents with custody, visitation, and support orders in force. A removal case is when the primary custodial parent’s desire is to move out of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts with a child.
Parents may assume that they can relocate with their child if they have physical custody. However, with this type of divorce or custody issue, having sole or primary physical custody does not entitle a mother or father to move a child outside of Massachusetts without the other parent’s consent or a court order. A move of any significant distance may justify modification of visitation, support, and certain other orders relative to the divorce.
