Divorce – How Moving Out Affects Your Child Custody Agreement Posted onJune 16, 2015September 9, 2020/ Devry Smith Frank LLP In this video, John provides some insights on how moving out of your home can have an affect on your rights to child custody and your child custody agreement during his interview at the Real Estate 101 Show. John Schuman is the head of family law team at Devry Smith Frank LLP (DSF) and is a practicing family lawyer. For example if you just move out, it’s called the defecto custody. What that really means is the parent that moves out concedes custody to the other parent. The parent that stays behind with the children is the custodial parent. Once a parent has those responsibilities it is very hard to get that changed in court. That is one of the reasons why people stay together because if they leave they don’t want to lose access to their children. On the other hand if you decide to take the children with you, the courts frown on that as it appears you are limiting access to the other parent. Watch the video to learn more about this matter.
