Child Relocation ∙ Parental Relocation

Moving out of state or any other significant geographical change will impact the details surrounding the child custody agreement, and perhaps even the child support agreement if the relocation impacts costs or income involved with caring for the child. Because of the impact that a relocation will have on various aspects of a divorce agreement, a divorced or separated mother or father who wants to relocate — whether with or without the child — it will likely need to be approved by the court, depending upon the agreement of the parties.

When considering a relocation petition, the court will make a determination based on the best interests of the children. The issue of relocation is always difficult, and it can be much more complicated when both parents are intricately involved in the details of the child's life. With decades of experience representing clients petitioning for relocation and clients contesting relocation petitions, Lawrence B. LaRaus, Esq. can help you understand your rights and options in the relocation process.
