    Lawyers agree

    Answered . No law requires you to stay in one place. If children are involved, you must file for relocation before relocating.

    Some other reason might compel you to remain where you are during the divorce, for various reasons such as protecting marital property from dissipation. Speak with an attorney if you have any questions specific to your case that might require research or more detailed analysis.

    Good luck with your move.
