Understanding the Parental Relocation Process

If you have custody of your child, you cannot simply move out of the jurisdiction. In order to move, whether for a new job, to go to school or to be with family, you must obtain written consent from the other parent or file a motion with the court.

The motion will be to request primary, physical custody of the child as well as an order to be able to relocate. The court will weigh the facts for and against the move and then make a decision based on what is in the best interests of the child.

We can help you through the process, including notifying the other parent, filing a motion with the court and protecting your interests in court. We also represent parents who are opposed to the relocation. In either case, we will aggressively protect your rights as a parent.
