Recently the New York courts have been more receptive to the custodial parent’s requests to move with the child as a result of financial hardship if in fact
The child will benefit. The courts will be looking at the present relationship between the non-custodial parent and the child, whether the child
Will have improved, strong family support in the new environment. The court will also look to whether the non-custodial parent has been paying child support, etc.
It’s difficult to judge hearing only one side of the story, but based on the facts that you present, I think you will find a receptive ear with the court.
I do, however, suggest in the strongest terms that you should try to mediate a resolution of this matter rather than litigate in court.
I can help. Speak to your spouse and give me a call at 212-370-1660 to arrange for an appointment to discuss the matter at greater length.
