Case name    : In re Rogan M.

Case #          : No. 1–13–2765, 2014 IL App (1st) 132765

Court             : Illinois Appellate Court, First District, Sixth Division

Reviewed by : Laura W. Morgan

Main issue     : Child Custody

The trial court’s order denying mother’s petition to relocate out of state with out of wedlock child was not a final, appealable order; several petitions including father’s petitions for custody and for a parenting schedule, and mother’s petitions to modify child support and for attorney fees, remaining pending, and if father were to prevail on his petition to modify child custody it would defeat mother’s petition to relocate with child.
