Child Move Aways & Relocations

A “move-away” case occurs when one parent asks the court’s permission to move the child(ren) away far enough that it disrupts the other parents’ custodial or visitation time. Regardless of the actual distance, if the move impacts the current custody agreement, the moving parent will need to request a new custody and visitation order. Due to potential consequences of approving or denying a move-away request, the court will consider many factors prior to making a ruling.

Whether you are a parent looking to relocate your child to another city or state, or you oppose the intended relocation of your child, it is essential that you contact a seasoned, knowledgeable Los Angeles move-away attorney immediately to ensure all necessary issues are addressed, and to bring you the best possible outcome for your case.

In relocation proceedings, the court will primarily be concerned with the effect the relocation will have on the child or children in question. Health and financial stability are among, but not limited to, the many factors considered. Quite often, the court will enlist the assistance of a child custody evaluator to determine what custody arrangements are in the best interest of the child(ren).
