Considering the fact that we are focusing on the issue of divorce, you can travel during a divorce for personal or business reasons. You can travel to free your mind from the stress of going through a separation from your spouse or for any other purpose. However, before continuing with this, there are several things you must implement to avoid going against your legal procedures. In this case, we will be examining without your children. While traveling with your children is not forbidden, we will give you reasons why it is not such a good idea before your divorce process is complete.
What you should do before leaving
Before leaving and planning an excellent trip for yourself, without the children, I must say that there are things you should know. Remember that divorces are unpleasant, and there is always someone else to think about. So here are the things to consider:
- Complete Case claims: “Be fully aware of what the law is in your state. Are you allowed to leave the country while you are going through your divorce?”
- What is the custody plan? Some custody documents say that you must have signed a permit, others do not say anything. Read the fine print.
- Share all the information with the other parent, I know it is your trip, but you still need to stay in touch if necessary to handle any document as the time passes before completing the divorce process.
- If in doubt, ask your lawyer if it is okay to travel. I know what it cost you to call, but it would be better than the alternative.
So, can you really travel during the divorce?
Since you are not traveling without your children, you may go outside of the United States at any time during the dissolution proceedings. However, you must be accessible for the purposes of your spouse to give you any document that is necessary for you to sign or check through. You can enter into a stipulation with your spouse that all document services can be done by email. In addition, you can request that the Court grant you the possibility to appear in court by telephone for almost all court proceedings, except for those where you must physically appear. If your case is not extremely complicated with many problems, you will most likely not have to appear in court. In fact, you can get a divorce without having to appear in court if you and your spouse agree and stipulate all the terms of the divorce without any altercations. If your case is complicated by many problems, you should seriously consider hiring a lawyer. In which case, the lawyer can make almost ALL court appearances for you without your presence being necessary.
Why should you not travel with your children?
If there are children involved in your case and you want to travel with them outside of the United States, this will be much more complicated. There is a lot of information that a lawyer must know to analyze this situation better. Children must not leave the country unless the other party agrees or the court gives permission. While also considering the legal implication of taking your children outside the country, there is also an emotional implication. Do not forget that your children will be feeling the separation as much as you are. It will be extremely stressful to have your children experience you breaking down at a point where they are also searching for a source of strength. The trip is for you to gain some strength as much as it is for you to be there for your children when you get back. Therefore, it is much better to travel outside the country if you are going alone, since you do not have exclusive rights for your children, no matter how much you hate to admit it.
