Determining Relocation Cases in Michigan

Under Michigan law, parents cannot move more than 100 miles away without the court’s permission or the consent of the other parent. If sole custody has been granted to you or the other parent, there might be fewer legal options. If you have joint custody, the court should be petitioned.

  • Judges in Michigan usually ask the following questions in relocation cases:
  • Can the non-custodial parent have reasonable parenting time after the move?
  • Does the move improve the quality of life for the child and parent?
  • What are the motivations for the move?
  • What are the motives for challenging the relocation?
  • Have there ever been instances of domestic violence?

These are just a few of the questions a judge will review when determining what decision to make in a relocation case. No matter which side you stand on, it is important that you carefully prepare your case and your argument to ensure your rights as a parent remain safeguarded. Allow our firm to guide you through this time!
