What is the test for allowing a mother to move with her children?

Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from Archibald v. Archibald, 2004 ABQB 256 (CanLII):

Applying the above principles from Gordon v. Goertz and the spectrum approach,( plus giving the greatest effect to the spirit and intent of the agreement entered into by the Archibalds ) suggests that I should allow the mother to move with the children. So too does the relatively short distance of the move and the point near the mobility end of the spectrum that this case falls.
