Child Custody - Removal
Rosenwasser v. Rosenwasser, 89 Mass. App. Ct. 577 (2016): The Appeals Court concluded that a Probate and Family Court judge abused her discretion in entering a modification judgment of divorce denying the request of the father, who was the primary custodial parent, to remove the parties' minor child to a different state, where the judge placed disproportionate emphasis on the effect of the move on the mother's relationship with the child, while failing to adequately weigh the interests of the father and the child; further, the court concluded that, although it was a close question, remand for redetermination of the best interests of the child, rather than reversal, was warranted.
