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.
