Having physical custody of a child does not mean that a parent can move with that child at will. In fact, any move that could interfere with existing custody and visitation orders requires court approval, and parental relocation or "move-away" cases are among the most intensely contested matters we handle at The Law Offices of Burch, Coulston & Shepard, LLP.
Whether you are a custodial parent who wants to move for economic or personal reasons, or you want to prevent a divorcing spouse or ex-spouse from moving with your children, fast action to get informed legal counsel will likely be critical. At our firm, you can work with a deeply experienced and knowledgeable Orange County parental relocation lawyer who will analyze all aspects of your case, explain your rights and help you take decisive action.
California law governing move-aways is complex and evolving. It is important to work with an attorney who stays on top of recent court decisions in this specific area, and the Certified Family Law Specialists at our firm do exactly that.
The life changes that occur and opportunities that arise after a divorce with children are impossible to gauge in advance. Among many other factors, recent economic volatility has led to a dramatic increase in parental relocation disputes.
Handling these matters effectively is a clear strength of our dedicated family law firm, and we encourage you to contact us at (949) 565-4158 now for a consultation focused on the best approach to your case.
