I'd say court was a TON easier than here, lol! Again, I'd REALLY like to know the county involved here. She already SAID it was Long Island, so that's one of two options. Given her income level I highly highly doubt she is in Nassau County, so my guess is Suffolk. If that is the case, I'd say the court would REALLY push them to come to an agreement and they'll spend most of their "court" time? With their lawyers trying to hash things out with the GAL, sometimes in front of the judge, sometimes not. Lots of back and forth, negotiations, blah blah blah. But if a GAL is siding in FAVOR of the move? It's extremely unlikely a judge is going to rule opposite of that. That's speaking as someone from that state, from that county, who has DONE a move-away from that county, and whose attorney is highly versed on how a move-away will, or won't, go.
Again, that's caveating that there are some missing pieces of information. Many of you are speaking from states where moves are NOT likely; however, you'll find the northeast quite a bit different.
