Relocating with a Georgia Child Custody Order

Often after such an upheaval as divorce can bring, a person decides that moving to a new place would be the best option, either to pursue a new career opportunity, to move closer to family and a support network or simply to try and make a fresh start. If a person shares custody of a child under 14 years old in Georgia, however, trying to move becomes a more complicated process. It is important to understand the steps that a parent looking to relocate after divorce needs to take to modify a child custody award and the factors the court will base its decision on when deciding whether to grant the modification.
