As an attorney, it is critical to stay up to date with case law developments in the practice areas that an attorney focuses on. In my case, that is family law. The most recent case that a felt required my review and attention is the case concerning child relocation in New Jersey. The case of Bisbing v. Bisbing changes the requirement/factors in seeking a relocation order out of the State of New Jersey. The main emphasis of relocating out of New Jersey was what the custodial parent wanted essentially and that the move would not cause harm to the child. That was the old way in Baures, the leading case concerning child relocation. In Bisbing, the Supreme Court found that the main factor should be the best interests of the child which is a much higher standard to meet. This is a major win for non-custodial parents who in the past saw their children relocate to all parts of the country and other countries limiting their parenting time and in reality their communication with their children. After I reviewed the arguments and opinion of the court, I truly believe the Court did it right this time and gave non-custodial parents hope that their kids will not be whisked away just because mom or dad met someone else or some other weak reason for relocation.
