Can You Move with the Kids After Separation or Divorce? Posted onJuly 21, 2021/ Devry Smith Frank LLP Podcast #60 –Can You Move with the Kids After Separation or Divorce? One of the most difficult decisions any judge faces is whether to allow one parent to move away from the other parent after separation or divorce. It is hard because the children can lose most, if not all, of their relationship with the parent who stays behind. While judges can sometimes be suspicious that the move may be a tactic by a vindictive ex to cleanse the other parent out of their life and the life of the children, often there are really good reasons for the move and it can be hard to balance all the positive benefits that the moves offer to the children against losing a relationship with a parent. When the Federal and Ontario government’s changed the Family Laws in March 2021, they made them more specific as to when moves should and should not be allowed. Certified Specialist in Family Law, John Schuman, explains how to know when you should go to Family Court and when you should look at those other options to resolve matters with your Ex.
