- Q. Could I move me and the kids out of state?
- A: If there were a divorce, it would not restrict you from moving away, but the terms of the divorce could require the children to remain with their father, giving you parenting time in summer and on holidays. Or they might be able to go with you. It depends on all the facts, what you and he can agree to, and what the court determines to be in the best interest of the children. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local family law attorney who can review all the facts of your situation and advise you of your options, how the divorce process works, and how it determines issues related to children and parents.
