Although itís the latest and hottest topic in family law, over the last several decades a portion of Americaís children of divorce have quietly grown up with parents living in different cities, different states and even different countries.† As these children are now becoming adults and parents themselves, legal and mental health professionals are coming to understand relocation issues from a different perspective, i.e. through the eyes of the children.† About ten years ago, National Public Radio aired an interview with a young man who shared his painful experiences traveling coast to coast, torn between two homes.†† Fortunately, his experience brought national attention to the problems experienced by this new generation of traveling children.
