Protecting clients facing contested relocation matters

Divorce and separation can have significant effects on the family. When children are involved in a divorce case, child custody can be one of the most hotly contested issues. For a parent, the idea of having to share the child’s week with an ex-spouse can be trying. When a parent faces a situation where they may not see their child for weeks at a time or more, it can be too much to bear.

Relocation can be one of the hardest, most emotional topics for a parent to face. When a custodial parent wishes to relocate with a child, the noncustodial parent may take legal action to block it. A court will take into many factors into consideration when deciding on relocation. They will always act in the best interest of the child. In some situations, relocation is denied. Other times, relocation is awarded because it would make a positive change in the child’s life. Both sides need and deserve aggressive and effective representation. If you are involved in a relocation case and need effective legal support, contact Peter V. Mandi & Associates, Inc.  for a consultation.

Cases for relocation

Relocation is a complex topic for courts. It is difficult to convince a judge that relocation is necessary as it will impact a child’s life immensely. While courts will decide on the matter in the best interest of the child, judges will take into consideration multiple factors related to the parents and the child. Some of the factors regarding the child include the impact of the move on the relationship with the noncustodial parent, the relationship with extended family members, the child’s social and academic life, and the child’s quality of life. Some important factors regarding the parents include the reason for the move, why the noncustodial parent opposes the move, and the change in quality of life for the parent requesting the right to move. It is important to have a passionate attorney on your side when facing a request or opposition to relocation.
