Whether you are relocating or disputing the other parent's move to another state, we can help you while focusing on the best interests of your children.

Laws Protecting You in Relocation and Custody Cases
The relocation and custody process is not as simple as notifying the other spouse after you have loaded up the moving van. A parent relocating with a minor child must follow strict guidelines. Laws are in place to keep the custodial parent from just picking up and moving to another state, putting custody and visitation schedules into turmoil.
First and foremost, if the move is not in the best interest of the children, the relocation cannot happen. Written notice must be provided. Objections are heard before a judge.
At the Arnold Law Firm, our relocation lawyers know the proper steps and the procedures related to relocation. We have represented both sides of a relocation matter, but our focus remains the same no matter whom we are advocating for in court. That focus remains the best interests of the children.
