This need must be determined very quickly, so the child will know what to expect from both parenting camps. It can be very unsettling for a child to be moved back and forth or worse yet, not knowing where he or she will be going in the future. Combined with both parents arguing heatedly over this, a child can be traumatized for quite some time – often feeling that he or she is the cause of the parents’ arguments and anger. That feeling of guilt for a child can last a lifetime – better to prevent it by working out domicile issues fairly and without undue rancor for the child’s sake.
Your need may be to move the child, or it may be to stop any move for the child. State laws vary, and can be very complex in determining just what can be done for child relocation or change in domicile. Protection of the child is at the center of every determination, and the laws set certain stipulations as well, such as one parent not being able to move a child more than 100 miles from the other parent without the consent of the other parent or a court order.
