In any situation involving relocation, whether that relocation is across town or across the country, you are required to notify the other parent of the move. If the move will involve new schools, increased difficulty in exchanging the child or virtually any impact on the child or the other parent, it is important to plan ahead. To gain the approval of the courts, the parent who is moving may have to provide child impact studies, an analysis of the school system, proof of access to health care facilities and expert testimony.
If it will affect child custody, relocation may be disputed by the other parent. We can help you reach an amicable arrangement to protect your child’s best interests in any case involving relocation. We will work closely with you to find the right solution for you.
