Addressing Custody Changes Related To Parental Relocation

Even when one parent permits the other parent to relocate with their child or children, the situation can be difficult for all who are involved; everyone wants the process to be equitable, and they may have differing opinions about what is fair. For the last 30 years, we at Hartstein & Hartstein have worked with our clients to reach an agreement about what is in the best interest of their children before a judge legally determines those interests. And, when court rulings are necessary, our Bergen County parental relocation attorneys commit to advocating for our clients' rights, whether they want to move with a child or challenge the other parent's relocation.

Englewood Child Relocation/Move-Away Attorney

Child custody matters change when a parent relocates; in New York and New Jersey, several factors are accounted for when considering relocation or the terms of relocation, including:

  • Consent of the parent
  • Best interests of the child
  • Notice of relocation
  • Distance between parents
  • Good faith burden of proof
  • Visitation schedule
  • Access to the child
  • Travel expenses

Because parents' and children's situations change, our lawyers understand the importance of establishing client trust and developing a professional relationship. We are plain language lawyers; we offer clear answers and practical solutions in complex situations. We have been doing it for more than three decades.
