On April 23, 2001, the Supreme Court of New Jersey decided Baures v. Lewis , 167 N.J. 91 (2001). For more than 16 years, Baures guided post-divorce interstate relocation of children in a manner that generally favored the primary-custodial parent who sought relocation. On Aug. 8, 2017, the Supreme Court decided Bisbing v. Bisbing , __ N.J. __ (2017), which reversed Baures and set the new standard for interstate relocation disputes—a “best interests” analysis. Bisbing is a landmark decision that serves as a departure from Baures.
