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 in fact 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 with your spouse 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.
