Relocation of Children in an Arlington Divorce

At the law office of the Arlington Family Lawyer, we represent cases at all points in resolution. If you already have a child custody and visitation order in place but are considering a relocation of your children, you are quite right to be seeking out legal advice.

In Virginia, the custodial parent can relocate children.  However, the non-custodial parent does have the right to legally protest and stop the move, at least temporarily.  Any custodial parent wishing to move with his or her children is wise to do so with the supervision of the court to ensure

If your relationship with the parent of your child is relatively amicable, your lawyer may be able to use mediation tactics to help negotiate a child relocation plan that will work for you and your children. This is usually the best-case scenario. Not only does it benefit both spouses, but also greatly benefits the children by not putting them through the stress of a hearing.

Sometimes, however, a hearing is the only option. Whether you are looking for someone to mediate decisions between you and your child’s parent or someone to aggressively advocate your rights as a parent in court, you need a lawyer with compassion for your case and an intimate understanding of your legal rights. At our law office, our Arlington family lawyers have years of experience representing clients in all aspects of Texas family law, including child custody and conservatorship matters.
