Relocations after Divorce in Rancho Cucamonga
Rancho Cucamonga Family Lawyer
State law requires that a divorced parent advise the court if they are planning to relocate. As the "best interests of the child" is the primary concern in any child custody matter, it can come to pass that the court will not allow the parent to move a great distance from their children if it is deemed that the child or children will suffer through the move. It is recognized that circumstances change, and employment may require moving into a different city, state or even country. Presenting this to the court requires the assistance of a Rancho Cucamonga family law attorney.
Relocations after Divorce
There are many circumstances that can lead to a necessity to relocate. One's career is vital, and the income from employment provides for the children of the marriage. When the career demands a move, it must be agreed by the court if a distance of many hours is involved. If the parent who is moving has primary custody of the children, the court may decide that the other parent will get custody if it is felt that this would protect the best interests of the children. These matters can be emotional and difficult, and you want the steady hand of a skilled family law lawyer to help determine how to best proceed, whether you are seeking a relocation, or your former spouse is planning to relocate and this is a matter of contention.
