Massachusetts courts strive to preserve access to parenting time for both parents whenever possible. One parent choosing to move the children into or out of Massachusetts and away from the other parent may significantly compromise that parent’s access to his children.
Accordingly, Massachusetts courts must approve a parent’s decision to remove a child from Massachusetts without the other parent’s consent. Given the high stakes these cases tend to be some of the most contentious child custody cases. In order to prevail on a request to permanently remove a child from Massachusetts, a parent must present specific evidence to the Probate Court. A knowledgeable family law attorney can help a relocating parent effectively prepare for a removal hearing.
