The court, in deciding on a petition for the relocation, considers the motivation behind the need to relocate. Is well within the reason and fair play? It is up to the courts to decide on it. To make sure that the other parent does not use relocation as an escape device, the courts have become more strict with it.
Thus, the reasons for relocation cannot be founded on the whims and self-serving motives of the other parent. Rather, the child’s best interest must be put first, in some way or another. Thus, if the other parent does not give adequate support and the custodial parent needs to transfer to another city for a better job offer, then the petition for the relocation will most likely be accepted.
