Salem and Haverhill, MA, Attorney — Relocating With a Child

An Experienced Lawyer Helping Parents With Child Relocation Concerns

The lives of today’s children are much different than those who grew up only 20 or 30 years ago. Our society is much more mobile. Gone are the days when nearly every child was born and raised in the same town under the same roof as both of its parents. Relocating with a child after a divorce or the end of a relationship has become commonplace. For parents who wish to move out of town, out of state, or out of the country, making formal changes to their child custody agreement and visitation schedule is necessary.

At the Law Offices of Kenneth E. Lindauer, we work with men and women facing matters pertaining to relocating with a child. Whether you are the custodial parent and wish to relocate due to a change in employment or you oppose the other parent’s decision to move, we can help. With more than three decades of family law experience, Kenneth E. Lindauer knows how to offer the personal support you need in conjunction with the legal advocacy you require.

Parental Relocation

With the current state of the economy, many parents are finding it necessary to relocate for a new job. They may be moving to a city just a few miles away, across the country, or overseas. Regardless of the new location, a parent who shares custody or visitation cannot relocate a child without the permission of the court.

In a case involving relocating with a child, the original child custody and visitation agreement must be modified. As your legal counsel, it is our job to prove to the courts that relocation is in the best interests of your child.

Opposing the Relocation of Your Child

Many parents, whether they share partial custody of their child or maintain regular visitation, oppose the relocation of their child. They want to safeguard the relationship they have built with their child. Our firm works with these parents to develop a strategy for keeping their family as intact as possible.
