You’ve made it through one of your most difficult journeys and your divorce is finalized. It isn’t uncommon to want a fresh start in another location.

Keep in mind, more often than not the court will want to side with not disrupting the lives of the children. The court will take the following into consideration:

  • Age of the children
  • Distance of the move
  • Improvement of quality of life

With this in mind, if you are the parent wishing to move, you need an ally. You will need to prove to the court why a move would be beneficial to the children. Our attorneys have experience with relocation and will fight for you and your children.
