Child Relocations and Move-Aways: Representing Parents

As our society and economy change, the needs of custodial parents also change. Increasingly the courts are being asked to decide on relocation cases — often called move-aways — in which a custodial parent is seeking to move with the child(ren).

There are a variety of circumstances that necessitate a move-away, including the custodial parent relocating for employment or moving with a new spouse. Relocating with a child(ren) can have a substantial impact on the child(ren) and often will result in:

  • Changing the child's school district
  • Removing the child from the immediate availability of the noncustodial parent
  • Affecting relationships with other family members and friends

Child relocation cases are often very emotional as one parent is seeking to move the child from his/her other parent and often disrupt an established visitation/custodial arrangement. Our attorneys take a practical approach to helping you with your most personal legal matters.

If you are considering moving with your child(ren) to pursue a professional or other opportunity — or if you have learned that your child's parent is considering a move with your child and you want to preserve your access schedule or object to the move — we can help. Please schedule a time to meet with one of our attorneys to discuss your legal options.
