Practical Legal Advice — Trusted, Effective Representation When Parental Relocation Becomes An Issue

A parent seeking to remove a child must show a good faith reason to modify a child custody arrangement, to allow for relocation, if the move will impact the parenting time of a noncustodial parent. Conversely, a noncustodial parent may oppose the relocation if the move means that access to the child will be dramatically impaired.

The ability of parents to continue to co-parent a child after divorce or a custody order, is of vital interest in many custody disputes. Mitch Mullen is a family lawyer who strives to keep both parents in their children's lives. He can suggest a number of creative strategies that maintain parents' roles in a child's upbringing.
