Relocation Lawyers in NH
New Hampshire Divorce Attorney
When married parents make the decision to legally dissolve their relationship,
a parenting plan can be set in place to establish
child custody and visitation orders. There are many sacrifices that must be made in
these situations and moving is often out of the question. The courts look
at what is in the best interest of the child when determining what a parenting
plan should entail.
At Shaheen & Gordon, we understand that life situations may require
relocation and we can help you get the necessary legal permission to continue
with this move. We also help parents who are not in favor of the relocation
on the basis of it disrupting their child's life and restricting visitation.
Seeking Parental Relocation
There are many considerations that a court takes into account when determining
relocation. The most important factor, however, is the best interest of
the child. Typically, the child's best interest is whatever allows
him or her greatest access to both parents. Ultimately, the judge makes
the decision on whether to permit or deny relocation. A
divorce and family law attorney from our firm, however, can help provide evidence that shows that this
relocation may be in the best interest of the child. The judge also considers
other statutory factors and we can also use these considerations to your
advantage. If you have reason to believe that your ex-spouse's relocation
would disrupt the child's life, we can help you prove your case.
Whether you are seeking permission for relocation or believe that your
child's other parent is planning to move, it is important to discuss
your case with one of our experienced lawyers. We understand child custody
laws and will be a zealous advocate for you. For more information about
relocation or another family law related matter, call us today.
