If a relocation takes place, would changes have to be made to parenting time?

By Laura M. Urbik Kern

That's correct. That's what we would do. We would work out a new parenting plan. A lot of times when people move out of state or very far away, we have to factor in transportation expenses, who's going to pay those, how much are they going to be, and is it feasible for that other parent to be able to see the child given the distance. Maybe they don’t have any money and they can't pay for a plane ticket. The other parent has the wherewithal to pay for the ticket, so maybe we're going to make them pay for the plane ticket to get the other parent there. Again, it’s always fact-driven.
