Relocation And Move-Away Attorneys
Are you concerned about relocation or move-aways as a parent during or following a divorce? A divorcing parent’s desire to move away with children can lead to an intense child custody dispute. When a custodial parent wants to relocate after divorce or resolution of a custody case outside of divorce such as paternity, modifications of other orders are often necessary.
At Burke & Domercq, APC, we have extensive experience assisting mothers and fathers with their needs in all such situations. Reaching an acceptable child custody and visitation agreement is often extremely difficult when one parent intends or threatens to move. Especially when the distance is likely to seriously limit the other parent’s access to their own children, litigation becomes a strong possibility. It is essential to seek qualified, resourceful legal counsel as early as possible in this process.
