Automatically when a request to change the parenting plan is filed by one parent, the court in Georgia issued an standard order that says, in part, that neither parent will take the minor child out of the state. I imagine the court wants to assure that the parties do not do an end run by taking the child out of the court's jurisdiction.
Sometimes that restriction on travel is burdensome and it is possible to file a petition with the court to have that restriction lifted.
On what factors are such requests usually adjudicated? Is risk of flight the only factor that is considered, or is equity also considered.
If risk of flight, what factors lead a court to lift the restriction.
If equity, what types of inequity between the parents do the courts consider noteworthy?
