Move Away Orders Attorneys in Orange County
Can My Child Be Moved To A New Location?
Parents who share custody of a child can be put into a difficult situation when one of those parents wants to relocate for such reasons as a new job, or they are getting married. This will require either consent of the other parent, or a court order allowing the move away request. Whichever side of this dilemma that you are on, it is important that you know your legal rights as a parent.
Moving away can cause the court to make changes to your custody agreement. The court will always do what is in the best interest of the child. So don’t try to move away in order to get a leg up in your custody battle, or to try to limit the visitation time with your child’s other parent, because it can really come back to bite you.

What Must I Know Before Attempting A Move?
Once again, the court always wants to do what is in the best interest of the child. Will your move be providing your child with a stable environment? The court is more likely to allow a move to a place with a better school system and a lower crime rate.
It is also important that both parents still have access to visitation of the child. Many times the court will modify the custody agreement to give more contact to the non-custodial parent. This can sometimes include having the child for the summer and holidays.
