Relocation Factors In Pennsylvania

The courts will look at several factors when determining whether or not to grant a proposed relocation. However, the most important factor to be considered is whether or not the relocation is in the best interests of the child. Some of the other factors include:

  • The type of relationship that the child has with the party proposing to relocate (including relationships with siblings and other people in the child's life)
  • The age of the child and the likely impact of the relocation (physical, educational and emotional developments)
  • How relationships will be preserved between the relocating and non-relocating parent
  • Child's preference (depending on the age and maturity of the child)
  • Whether the relocation will enhance the quality of life for the child

At Scaringi Law, we pride ourselves on our in-depth knowledge of the law and our ability to effectively represent our clients in court. We are familiar with the information that courts will be looking for with regard to particular situations and what the likelihood is of the relocation being granted.
