MOVING RESTRICTIONS

Question #15:
My ex and I have in our divorce agreement that if either of us moves more than 30 miles away from a mutual location, the visitation rights will be revisited. We have been alternating the pick up and drop off evenly for 4 years. Recently I moved 23 miles from the mutual location and she lives 26.5 miles from that shard point. Now she is demanding that I do both the pickup and the drop off as well. In New York, is there any law which dictates which parent has to do pick-up and drop off? Or is the responsibility shared equally?


Answer:
Answer:
There is no law in NY that governs pick up or drop off. If you are both within the 30
Mile radius, you should keep the same arrangement as you have had. Only if either
Party moves out of the 30 mile radius will you be required to renegotiate the arrangement.
If you would like to mediate this matter, give me a call at 212-370-1660.
