The factors that the court considers include:

  • The motivations of the parent who is seeking to relocate
  • The child’s happiness in the current location
  • The quality of the relationship that a child has with both of his or her parents
  • The current child custody order
  • The physical and emotional health of the child
  • The financial consequences of the move
  • The ability to maintain the relationship between the child and the noncustodial parent
