If you are preparing for your marriage to come to an end or have already split up with your spouse, many different issues may be in front of you, from child support to the emotional impact of splitting up. However, our law office knows that divorce can result in all sorts of other changes in peoples’ lives, some of which can create a great deal of uncertainty and have a major impact on their future. For example, many people relocate after a divorce and some even move to a new city or part of the country.
Once your marriage is over, you might feel like you want a fresh start in a new place. Or, perhaps you want to be closer to your relatives or relocate for work. Sometimes, people are unsure of where to go after they are no longer able to live in the family home. Regardless of the reasons behind your decision to relocate, it is vital to be well prepared. You should do your best to research your options and a new area before moving. Moreover, you should understand how the move could affect you from a legal standpoint. For example, if you and your former spouse have custody issues to work through, you might need to satisfy certain requirements before moving with your child.
Ending a marriage and moving to a new neighborhood can be quite stressful, but many people are able to appreciate a new take on life afterwards. The divorce page on our firm’s site provides more on ending marriage.
