Parental Relocation in Tennessee: The Impact of the Aragon Decision - On-Demand
Webinar is now available on-demand. NOTE: On-Demand webinars are not eligible for CLE credit.
WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how the Tennessee Supreme Court's Aragon v. Aragon ruling regarding "reasonable purpose" changes how you advise parents either proposing or blocking a relocation.
On March 16, the Tennessee Supreme Court clarified what constitutes a “reasonable purpose” for parental relocation. The Court, in Aragon v. Aragon, ruled that the term “reasonable purpose” must be given its natural and ordinary meaning and overruled a 2006 Court of Appeals case which construed the term to mean a “significant purpose, substantial when weighed against the gravity of the loss of the non-custodial parent’s ability to participate fully in their children’s lives in a more meaningful way.”
The Aragon decision clarifies that the rigid structure of TCA 36-6-108 – in which the question of the best interest of the child is reached only if and when a parent opposing a move proves one of three grounds – suggests that the “reasonable purpose” ground is not intended to be a guise under which a trial court may determine whether a parent’s decision to relocate is wise or fair or in the child’s best interest.
Use this informative 60-minute on-demand webinar and learn how this decision and other changes affect how you guide clients through parental relocation issues.
