Lawyers for Parental Relocation Issues

Situations can occur after custody has been determined, which may require a change in custody or the need for a parent to relocate with his or her child. Custody modifications as drastic as relocation are looked at seriously by the courts.

At the Jeff Gilbert Law Office, we have significant experience representing parents in situations involving relocation and custody modifications.

Circumstances such as a career change or other life change can present a need for a parent to relocate. If custody is established, a parent must formally apply for relocation before taking his or her child with him or her. The courts will look at a number of different factors.

Factors considered for relocation

The most important factor is whether or not the move is in the best interests of the child. Other factors the courts will look at include:

  • Age of child
  • Relationships that the child has already made and how the move will affect him or her
  • Reason for the move
  • Proximity to other family members and friends
  • Educational opportunities
  • Opportunity for extracurricular advancements because of the move
