Seeking a Modification Before a Move
If you need to move out of Pennsylvania for work, to be with family or for another reason, we can help you through the process. In order to move out of state, you need to modify your custody and visitation agreement. When determining whether to grant the request for a modification, the court will look at a wide range of factors. Primary among those factors, however, is the best interests of the child.
When planning a move, it is important to ask:
- How will the other parent be able to visit your child?
- How will you and the other parent maintain communication?
- How will this move improve your child's life?
