Parents Who Want to Move Out of the Jurisdiction
In Nebraska, court permission is necessary in order to move out of the state with children. In order to move out of the court’s jurisdiction, a parent must show that:
- There is a legitimate reason to move
- The move is in the best interests of the child
Legitimate reasons to move may include a new job, educational opportunities, or a remarriage. When determining if the move is in the best interests of the child the court will look at a number of factors, such as:
- The effect the move will have on the child(ren)
- The ability of the noncustodial parent to visit the child(ren)
- The age, and health of the child(ren) and parents
- The children’s wishes, if they are old enough
If you are a parent who needs to move out of the state, it is very important that you talk to an experienced Omaha, Nebraska, child relocation attorney as soon as possible. At the Law Offices of Willow T. Head, attorney Head will listen to your needs and advise you accordingly.
Parents Who Want to Stop Their Child(ren) From Moving Away
A move may be prevented if we can prove that there is not a legitimate reason to move or it is not in the best interests of the minor child/children.
If the court does approve the child’s move, we may be able to ask that the custodial parent pay the cost of transportation for parenting time. You may also be able to get additional or extended parenting time rights because of the hardship this move has imposed.
