When one parent wants to move out of the state with the children, the parent in Illinois cannot just pack up and move. Rather, the other parent needs to approve of this move. If the other parent does not approve, both will most likely find themselves in court trying to convince a judge why this move should or should not happen.
When Illinois parents wish to move out of the state -- or the country -- with their child, they need to get permission from the child's other parent to do so. Failure to do this can result in very serious consequences.
There are a number of different reasons why a parent would want to move after a divorce. Maybe the family home is just no longer affordable. Or maybe the neighborhood or county where the family used to live in Illinois is just not longer financially feasible. However, before either parent just picks up and moves, it's important to first learn about relocation.
