Relocation is not as simple as it sounds.

If you have gone through a divorce and have a custody order put in place, you may think that the hard part is behind you, but what happens if you share custody with your former spouse and one of you decides to relocate? Even worse, what happens if either you or your partner refuses to let the move take place?

Relocation cases are some of the most emotionally-challenging times for families, and it is our goal to help this process go as smoothly and simply as possible.

Moving away when children are involved is a complex decision that has to be approved by the courts. The court will take into consideration your child’s age, both parents’ involvement in the parenting, and ultimately decide what is going to be best for the child. At Lopez & Wilmert, LLP the goal of our experienced family lawyers is to help you obtain the necessary documentation and guide you through the process.
