Tennessee Parent Relocation Law
Tennessee Parent Relocation Law by Miles Mason, Sr. Available on Amazon and Kindle
What goes into a Tennessee court’s decision to grant or deny a divorced parent’s request to relocate with his or her children? The primary residential parent may need to move to take a much higher paying job out of state or be with a new spouse, but the nonprimary residential parent may have been very heavily involved in their children’s lives.
Attorney Miles Mason, Sr. will tell you that a court will weigh many factors, but its uppermost consideration will be what’s in the best interests of the children. Will what they gain socially, financially, educationally, and emotionally outweigh the loss of the world they leave behind? As well, how will new parenting plans, visitation schedules, and routines affect them? Who pays for travel expenses? But, before a court reaches these issues, there are important technical legal requirements to which both parents must adhere.
For parents, judges, and lawyers, parent relocation situations are almost always “gut wrenching.” The goals of this book are to help reduce tension and to help parents reach a compromise before rushing into a courtroom to do battle.
