Generally when parents separate, they still want to remain in the same community where they have been living.  Sometimes however, for any number of reasons, one of the parents wants to move away.  Maybe they have a job opportunity elsewhere, maybe they want to be closer to their family, or perhaps they have a new relationship that motivates them to a new community.  Whatever the motivation, the question becomes what happens to the children of the relationship?   Joseph Broadhurst of our firm has recently achieved success in both a BC Supreme Court trial (A.B. v. C.D.,  2014 BCSC 1081) and an appeal from Provincial Court to BC Supreme Court (C.M.B. v. B.D.G.,  2014 BCSC 780) on the issue of mobility, and summarizes some of the considerations in a three part series.
