Child Relocation Attorney

When child custody is involved, moving away is not as simple as packing up and leaving. Whenever one parent wishes to move more than 50 miles with a child, he or she must first obtain court permission. Proper documentation must be filed. If the other party opposes the move, a court hearing must take place.

Relocation disputes can lead to highly contentious situations between custodial parents, noncustodial parents and children. Noncustodial parents often feel that their child's relocation will permanently damage their parental relationship. On the other hand, custodial parents often feel that a move will provide a healthier environment for the child, one that offers improved educational and extracurricular opportunities.

As with other aspects of child custody, it takes professional guidance to successfully navigate these complex and highly emotional legal issues.
