Moving with your children
If you want to move out of town, province or out of Canada with your children, there are many factors that a court will consider, such as:
- the provisions in any existing custody orders or agreements;
- how often the other parent has been spending time with the children;
- the reason you want to move, for example for a job, to attend school or to marry someone;
- the ages of you, your ex and your children;
- your status in Canada;
- special needs of the children and how the move might affect them;
- if there has been any criminal behaviour or the involvement of the Children’s Aid Society on either side;
- impartial evidence that it would be good for the children to move;
- your current standard of living compared to the proposed standard of living in the new place.
