Move Away/Parental Relocation
Moves and Child Custody
Parental relocation, often referred to as "move away", is an important issue to address in regard to divorce and
child custody arrangements. What happens if one parent wishes to move out of the state or even the country? What rights do you have as the custodial or non-custodial parent? Can you stop the parent from moving away? An attorney at our Los Angeles law firm can address all of your questions and concerns related to move away cases. We are experienced in handling
post-judgment modifications of custody and
visitation agreements in order to address parental relocation and can assist you if you are the parent wishing to move or are the parent who is staying local. We take on cases throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
Parental relocation or move away issues may arise during or after a divorce. They may therefore be addressed as part of your divorce agreement or may need to be handled as a modification of an existing divorce agreement. When the court is involved in handling a parental relocation case, they will rule in the best interests of the child, taking into account the reason for the move, the impact the move will have on the child's relationship with each parent and the situation for the child from an educational, social and psychological standpoint. Because there are various factors that will come into play in a case of this kind, it is important that you have a lawyer on your side to properly present your case and protect your parental rights so you can seek the best outcome possible.
