Can a custodial parent in Utah relocate?


Raising a child is a difficult task even in a two-parent household. That task can be even more difficult when marriages fail or once happy couples call it quits and the two-parent household turns into two separate households. In these situations, issues such as child custody, visitation and child support are usually hammered out rather quickly. Even in situations in which both parents get along and are able to co-parent their child, life can throw a curve ball. Job changes, promotions, new relationships and a host of other reasons could require one or both parents to move from the city and even the state that they once called home. When these situations occur, hearings regarding custody are sure to follow.
