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.
