Child Relocation Laws in California

Child custody and visitation arrangements have a far-reaching impact on the children of the divorced parents. Children have a basic need to feel loved and be cared for by both parents. When one parent, however, needs to move away, some obstacles become inevitable. Job offers or military assignments can require a move across country. Family situations may dictate a move to another part of the state.

Whether the person who needs to relocate has primary physical custody or visitation rights, the move-away has a profound impact on one parent’s time with the children. For all of these reasons, relocation cases must be handled through the family courts.

Finding Favorable Relocation Resolutions

Many things need to be considered when child custody and visitation are affected by the move. The primary concern is the best interests of the children.

When a relocation occurs, our attorneys can guide parents through obtaining modifications to:

  • Child custody arrangements
  • Visitation schedules
  • Support orders

While a parental move changes your family dynamics, it is possible to reach an agreement with the other parent that protects and promotes your children’s relationships with both of you. Our firm can help you mediate a workable agreement regarding a move-away petition. We strive for changes to existing court orders that allow the children to continue to have a meaningful relationship with both parents.

Our goal is to help you come to an agreement that works for you, the other parent, and your children. If the situation, however, becomes a contentious move-away battle, our Los Angeles family law firm can vigorously advocate for your position.

The Law Offices of Korol & Velen provides attentive help to both custodial and non-custodial parents in move-away situations. Call us today at (818) 962-4669 to arrange a consultation.
