A move-away occurs when a custodial parent decides to move far enough away that the existing custodial arrangement can no longer be adhered to.
When the proposed move makes the current agreement impossible, new custody and visitation orders are required.
Before taking the conflict to a judge, California parents are required to try and reach agreement on custody and visitation rights. If the parents are unable to reach an agreement, then the dispute must go to court, not to prevent the parent from moving but to decide whether the child may accompany the parent.
At this point, you need to hire the most experienced child custody attorney you can find. Child custody and move-away law is complex and voluminous. You will need a lawyer with considerable experience who is up to date on the many relevant precedents.
