Relocation of Parent Issues Attorney

Custodial parent relocations are complex matters that affect the interests of your child.

Virginia courts understand that after child custody arrangements are concluded, circumstances may change after the original custodial arrangement. Changes in a job and personal relationships can have an impact on the life of parents, sometimes requiring them to relocate from their current residence.

If you are a parent involved in a custody arrangement and you wish to relocate your children, or if you object to the relocation of your children by the other parent, you need an attorney who can argue why your position reflects the best interests of your child.

Child custody relocation lawyer fighting for the best interests of the children.

If a parent must relocate, a child custody relocation lawyer, such as James J. McCoart, III, can argue to modify the custody agreement if the relocation is in the best interests of the children.

The court, when making a determination of whether relocation is in the best interest of the child, will look at such factors as:

  • Is the relocation necessary?
  • How will relocating affect the relationship between the children and the non-custodial parent?
  • Will a close parent-child relationship still be possible after the relocation of the custodial parent?
