Last week's blog post discussed relocation in the child custody context. In addition to struggling understand the complex legalities of these situations, you may find the issue heated and leaving you unsure of what to do. Even if you have custody of your child, you may need to move for a new job or a career opportunity, or an elderly loved one may need you to move to help take care of them. You probably don't want to leave your child behind. On the flip side, you may not want your former spouse to move away with your child. This could threaten the bond you have with your child and affect your ability to see him or her on a regular basis.

Our experience handling relocation cases means we know how to analyze your situation and use the law to your advantage. Anything less could mean you lose crucial contact with your child.
When it comes to divorce and child custody the courts will put the best interests of the child first. This means you have to show a judge why your stance, whether to relocate or to prevent relocation, supports those interests. That could mean addressing what is best for your child's education, familial relationships, safety, and emotional well-being, amongst other considerations.

That is why it may be critical for you to seek assistance from a legal professional who will aggressively pursue a fair and favorable resolution.
