Mr. Benjamin has handled hundreds of relocation cases.

The basic premise is that a parent has a constitutional right to move and live where he or she wishes as long as it is not inherently bad for the child or dangerous somehow. Common sense is the best gauge of this standard. If the parent is trying to relocate the child out of the country, the court will generally want to make sure the new country is a signatory to the Hague Convention Treaty regarding child custody and child abduction.

The law presumes the moving parent is acting in good faith when proposing a move and presumes that parent will be granted the right to relocate. In opposing a relocation, the non-moving parent must show through 11 specific factors that the move is detrimental to the child (and this detriment must generally be more than merely losing time with that parent and extended family).
