Move Away & Relocations
After a divorce, or paternity action, parents typically set up separate residences in the same community, and the parenting plan and timesharing schedule are written in a way to provide both parents with frequent and meaningful contact with the kids through custody exchanges. However, the need for a parental relocation may later arise. Circumstances may include a military or job transfer or a new job opportunity, or simply the desire to start over in a new place. a significant move most often causes damage to an existing parenting plan, so any move should not take place without securing the agreement of the other parent or going to court and modifying the timesharing as necessary. if you are a parent seeking to move away with the kids or a parent who is unsure how to handle your co-parent’s intended move, complete the form on this page and set up a free consultation with a lawyer at All American Law.
