Sarasota Attorney Helping You Relocate With Your Children

Parents Relocating With Children

When a parent wants to relocate with children, the issues can be complicated. Whether you are the parent who wants to relocate or the parent who wants to prevent the children from going, we can help. The law on parental relocation is complex and it is easy to make mistakes if you do not have proper representation. We will take the time to explain your rights, obligations and options.

When a custodial parent proposes to move away, it can have a significant impact on the lives of all involved, including the children, parents, grandparents and other extended family members. The family court judge must decide whether the proposed move is in the best interests of the children.

The judge must consider several specific factors and then make a determination about the move. While relocation disputes can be emotional and often difficult to resolve, we will address the facts of your case and help you to achieve the best possible result under your specific circumstances.

A relocation dispute can be resolved by the agreement of the parties or through litigation. If an agreement is reached, it must be in writing and clearly define visitation and transportation arrangements. When that is completed, the court must still approve of the agreement. If the parties cannot reach an agreement regarding relocation, the matter must be submitted to the court. To achieve the best result, you will need the help of an experienced family law attorney.
