Best Brief in the 2018 Traynor Moot Court Competition. Drafted by Jen Joslin and Brandon Fuller, S.J. Quinney College of Law.

This case turns on the great import of protecting and preserving the best interests of children. There are two questions for this Court to determine: (1) the extent to which a parent’s right to travel should influence a custody determination, and (2) the extent to which one parent may avoid paying a share of childcare expenses by asserting an equitable defense of laches. Though both questions implicate the rights and interests of the parents, this Court’s holding should come down to the best interests of the children.
