Move Away With Children / Relocation
Carlsbad California and Move Away and Relocation Child Custody Attorneys
A common issue facing California parents and courts is the question of a parent’s right to move away, even out of the State of California and take the children with them. The issue has gone back and forth over the past decade between the courts and the State Legislature. Interpretations of recent rulings might lead some parents to believe if they have custody they have the right to move away. This is usually not the case. The court will want to hear the underlying issues, and will have an interest in what is in the best interests of the child or children involved. Today, many divorces in California are filed by the parties themselves and the terms of their child custody and parenting time agreements may or may not address this sensitive issue. This is one of the many reasons to consult with an attorney prior to filing your own paperwork in a child custody or divorce case in California. If you believe your former spouse is considering relocation and will be taking your child or children with them it is important to act immediately to protect your parental interests and the needs of the children.
