Primary physical custody does not always guarantee that parent will be able to relocate out of the state. The Court will consider lack of financial support but more importantly:
whether the relocation will be detrimental to the relationship with the parent being left and
whether there is an independent benefit to the child with the relocation.
Lack of financial assistance, lack of consistent contact, and the circumstances surrounding the relocation will be evaluated.
