Can a custody order be modified if a parent wants to move closer to extended family?


Relocation closer to extended family may be a factor considered by the court when determining custody modifications. The court will assess whether the move benefits the child’s well-being and if it is in the child(ren)’s best interest, the court may or may not modify custody arrangements depending on the circumstances on a case-by-case basis.
