Divorce and Relocation
Mission Viejo Divorce & Family Law Firm
If you are seeking to relocate your family to another state for a job opportunity,
better climate, or that you wish to get away from an ex-spouse, you may
find some legal opposition if you are the custodial parent of your children.
Whatever the reason may be for your desire to relocate your family, it
is important that you have skilled representation on your side in order
to maximize your chances of a favorable outcome to this process. California
State law requires custodial parents to file a
move-away petition in order to relocate your family.
In determining acceptance or denial of this petition, the court will consider
all or some of these factors, among others:
- The age of the child
- Their current relationship with their parents
- The reason for the move
- If the move will benefit the child
- The impact that the move will have on the non-custodial parent
- How the move will affect the emotional stability of the child as they will
be impacted by a new school, new friends, etc...
It is important that you have an attorney on your side that will be able
to persuade a court that the move will be beneficial for all parties involved,
or that the benefit outweighs the negative.
