Child Custody Relocation Providing Legal Support for You and Your Family

Child Custody Relocation Attorney in Philadelphia

For divorced parents, the matter of relocating is not a simple matter. In order to move to a different city, you must either obtain permission from the other parent, or obtain a court order.

The attorneys at the Law Office of Smith & Horwitz have extensive experience handling child custody relocation issues for clients throughout Philadelphia and surrounding areas.

As co-chair of the Custody Committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association, Elaine Smith devotes significant time to reviewing new child custody laws and helping other attorneys understand them. There are new laws in place that affect relocation requests. At our law firm, we stay up to date of all legislation changes to give our clients the best chance at obtaining a favorable resolution in court.

Relocation & Child Custody

In most cases, the courts favor both parents playing a meaningful role in the child’s life after divorce. For this reason, there must be a compelling reason for either parent to move away. If the court deems that relocation is in the best interests of the child, then it will likely grant the request. Many custody relocation requests are the result of employment interests. In today’s economy, parents may have to move to pursue quality jobs. Relocation issues can become contentious legal disputes when parents do not agree on what is in the best interests of the child. We strive to resolve child custody relocation disputes in an amicable manner but are always prepared for litigation if necessary.
