The court will look at what the best interests of the child will be. If you are moving just to provide yourself with a shorter or more convenient drive,
I doubt whether you will be successful. If, however, you can show the court that the child will have more time with you, that the educational opportunities in the new school are much better, that the child will have a broader support group to tend to his needs, etc., you may have a chance.
The best option is to discuss the matter with your spouse and reach an accommodation that works for both.
If you are in the NYC metro area, please call me to discuss mediating this issue.
