Can a Mother Move a Child Away From the Father in Virginia?
Yes, a mother can move a child away from the father in Virginia only if she can prove that the relocation will be in the child's best interests. The court only allows for relocation if it is in the child's best interests, despite being in the custodial parent's best interests.
