Divorce is hard on the entire family. Not only does it break the family apart, but it disrupts each member’s mental, emotional, and financial stability. There are different ways of coping with legal separation or divorce, and some ex-spouses decide to move away. It is a common way people react after divorce. The process can be depressing, and by moving away from the bad memories, an individual may believe that it will be easier to start fresh.

Moving away is not an easy decision, and things get extremely complicated when a divorced couple has children to consider. When a parent decides to move away with the child, the other parent may object as it will affect the visitation schedule set by the Court. See California Family Code section 7501.

Move-away child custody cases are the most challenging cases the Family Law Court must handle. It is not just overwhelming for the family but even for the Judge who must give the final decision, which may keep one parent away from their child because the court cannot prevent a parent from moving.

As we know, each case is unique, but there’s always a right and a wrong way to go about divorce or separation. There are several things that both you and your partner can or should do in order to make the procedure go as easily as possible.

Unfortunately, throughout our years of experience in dealing with divorce proceedings, we have encountered a number of couples that were unintentionally or intentionally committing some common mistakes that hindered the process of divorce.

In this post, you’ll get informative guidelines regarding common mistakes to avoid:
