Relocations And Move-Aways
Relocations are among the most difficult issues in the family law area for courts to decide. Determining whether allowing a child to move with one parent and cause greater difficulties for the other parent to maintain a positive relationship with the child is never easy. Whether you make the motion for relocation or are opposing the move, you want an attorney who understands both the procedural requirements and the family dynamics for your individual situation. Josh Carpenter knows how to develop the subtle elements of your case that provide the court with information it needs to make the decision.
Some of the ways in which our law firm can help include:
- Making sure that the other parent is notified that you are looking to move
- Weighing the advantages and disadvantages of relocating your child
- Petitioning the court to approve the move
- Working to draft a new parenting plan with the other parent
We also assist child support and spousal support modifications. If you are looking to pay less child support due to a change in financial circumstances, we work with you to modify your parenting plan.
