Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Family Law
litigation attorney. Thanks for your question. I'll be glad to assist.
Generally, the court is going to do whatever is in the best interest of the child
, so it will be your task to prove that it is in the best interest of the child to move with you. In order to determine this, the court will look at the child's preference, the home environment, the character of the parents, other family that is near, and any other factor that the court considers relevant. Also, the court will consider the opportunity you have and whether that is positive for the child (more money for you, etc.).
Generally, as long as you can prove that the father will not be deprived of his right to visitation (you may have to modify this) and that it is in the child's best interest to stay with you - - with whom he is familiar - - then you should be in pretty good shape.
However, this is a subjective matter, and the judge will decide based on what he thinks is best.
thanks for the question, and please let me know if you need anything else.
