When the court makes a child custody determination in a divorce, it is assumed that either parent's current residence will stay the same for the foreseeable future. This, however, is not always the case. When a custodial parent (or a parent with joint custody) wants to move and maintain custody, they must petition the court for relocation.
Our Henderson divorce attorneys at Ford & Friedman represent clients involved in custody issues related to relocation outside of the scope of the original divorce decree. We understand that these issues can often threaten one parent's access to a child and are often emotionally fraught. However, we've proven time and time again that we are capable of bringing clear and compelling representation to our clients' relocation cases and ensure that the court is informed of the family's best interests.
You do not have to face your relocation issue without a dedicated advocate in your corner. Contact us at (702) 904-9898 today.
Relocation is not considered lightly by the Nevada courts. The parent who is looking to move with their children must demonstrate to the judge that the relocation is in the children's best interests. When there is a disagreement between the parents about the relocation, a hearing will be set to review the merits of the proposed move and, if necessary, re-examine custody.
It's important to understand that, even for short distance moves, the relocating parent needs to first approach the court for relocation approval. These matters are often sensitive and, if not handled appropriately, can even lead to charges of kidnapping or loss of custody. No matter which side of a relocation matter you are on, our firm is ready to guide you through this process and diligently pursue a favorable outcome.
