Moving Out of Illinois With Minor Children

After a divorce, many people like to get a fresh start and begin a new chapter in their lives. In order to achieve this goal it is common for parents to move out of state and even take their child with them.

Factors to Considering in Relocating Out of State With Children

Some common questions that the court is going to ask (and questions you should ask yourself) and take into consideration when deciding relocation with a child is:

  • Is the move going to enhance the life of the child and the custodial parent?
  • Is the custodial parent moving out of state for a legitimate reason?
  • Can visitation arrangements be made if the out-of-state removal is approved?
  • Will there be harm to the child if they don’t see the noncustodial parent on a daily basis? And if yes what kind of harm could this be?
  • Why is the noncustodial parent fighting the move?
