Jacksonville Relocation and Custody Lawyers

Looking Out for the Best Interests of Your Children

While relocation may represent a new job or a better home for a parent, the best interests of the children should not be discounted. In fact, those interests are the focus of the courts. At Arnold Law Firm in Jacksonville, Florida, we help parents with relocation issues and are dedicated to protecting you and your family's interests.

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. For swift, thorough and responsible representation on a relocation or custody matter, contact a Jacksonville relocation and custody attorney at our office at 904-731-3800.

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.

Helping Service Members With Relocation Issues

Jacksonville is a military town. At our firm, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of service members in relocation matters. Whether you are being deployed overseas or need to relocate with your child to an out-of-state military base, we can help you.
