Custody disputes and business travel

There are many different issues that can affect family law cases, especially when it comes to child custody. Courts examine multiple issues that may play a role in the outcome of a custody dispute and every parent is in a unique position. Some, for example, may be required to travel for long distances as a result of business. In some cases, a parent may even have to leave the country for extended periods of time due to their business. It is important to understand how this could play a role in a custody decision and do what you can to fight for your child's best interests.

Sometimes, frequent business travel may even be one of the main causes of the breakdown of a marriage. However, people may have no choice but to travel for work. First of all, a parent who frequently has to leave home may find that this travel has an adverse impact on their ability to secure custody of the child, especially if the other parent has been the one taking care of the child. This does not mean that a parent who has to travel for business purposes cannot secure shared custody, and custody can be modified later on if circumstances change.

Ultimately, it is very important to look at the needs of your child as well as your unique circumstances and understand which options are on the table. Custody is determined on a case by case basis and there are all sorts of factors that can impact a parent's ability to secure custody of a child.
